Correct en_NZ locale, but date format is incorrect


Hi all,

I have successfully set the following locale:
LANG=en_NZ.UTF-8
LC_CTYPE="en_NZ.UTF-8"
LC_NUMERIC="en_NZ.UTF-8"
LC_TIME=en_NZ
LC_COLLATE="en_NZ.UTF-8"
LC_MONETARY="en_NZ.UTF-8"
LC_MESSAGES="en_NZ.UTF-8"
LC_PAPER="en_NZ.UTF-8"
LC_NAME="en_NZ.UTF-8"
LC_ADDRESS="en_NZ.UTF-8"
LC_TELEPHONE="en_NZ.UTF-8"
LC_MEASUREMENT="en_NZ.UTF-8"
LC_IDENTIFICATION="en_NZ.UTF-8"
However, Nautilus, Evolution and the clock in the panel all show the date as July 4. Sorry Americans, but your date format looks foreign to me: today is 4 July in New Zealand not July 4.

How do I correct this?

thanks, Steve.
