Vaadin Bean Validation doesn't work with date fields

I’'m using BeanValidationForm and annotated beans to validate the fields.
But if the bean contains java.util.Date fields, no matter if they are annotated to be validated or not, the UI stops working. Simply it is not allowing date selection from date pickler. Or if you try to enter a value manually, like “12/12/12” it says - Date format not recognized. If I use Form instead of BeanValidationForm it is working fine. This makes me think that there is something wrong with BeanValidationForm.

Did anyoneone manag to use BeanValidationForm with date fields?

Thanks in advance

This is probably the issue
related to locales.

Thanks for helping me.
Removing set/get Locale methods from BeanValidationForm solved the issue
