Strange Bug in Custom Option Date Drop-Down?

Sorry if this has been asked and answered somewhere else; I’ve looked but haven’t found it mentioned anywhere.

In my store the product requires people choose a birth date (in the custom option fields as a drop-down).  But there’s some strange things happening.  For example:

- If a user chooses month 1 (for January), only 28 days are available in the day drop-down.
- If a user chooses any date in 1900, the custom option field lists it as 1970 in the product summary in the cart.

Where would I fix these problems? I’ve looked at app/code/core/Mage/Catalog/Block/Product/View/Options/Type/Date.php, but I don’t see anything in there that would be causing these problems.

Thanks in advance for your help!
