Which release of the Mac OS? 10.5, 10.6, 10.7?
There was a different date format issue with FileMaker 11 and Lion (OS 10.7). An updater, 11v4 was released for that other issue. Have you tested this with FileMaker 11v4?
As a Windows user, I can only add that this does not occur when I try it in Windows Xp.
This is on 10.5.8 but I've had to live with this for the several years so it has happened on 10.4 and 10.3. I don't see why updating to 10.6 or 10.7 would fix the issue. I will try this on a Windows machine though. Thanks.

Neither do I, but we have several issues that are specific to a single release of the Mac OS so we need to document each issue carefully with regards to whether or not a change in OS version makes any difference or not.
Have you tested this with a small, brand new test file? That will confirm that issues with your specific file are not the cause of the problem.
And to repeat, have you tested this with FileMaker 11v4?
Thanks for the firm recommendation. The bug does not occur in 11v4!
It was a long shot, but since that update specifically dealt with a date issue and the download is free...
