This is a minor issue, but since I found it I thought I should report it.

When entering a date in a Form with a date control, the user can enter the 
characters '=', '+', '*' from the numeric keypad, '_'. 

Unless there are reasons for this then these probably should not be allowed.

In addition with Strict Format enabled, the valid characters should probably 
only be valid for the format selected.

For example of the format dd/mm/yy is selected, then '-' should probably also 
not be allowed.

This also applies to the data source window.

I hope this helps.

To grep the issues easier via "requirements" I put the issues currently lying on
my owner to the owner "requirements".
