DateBox issue

I have a DateBox , setting the default format like :
DateBox dateBox = new DateBox();
dateBox.setFormat(new DefaultFormat(DateTimeFormat.getFormat("MM/dd/yyyy"));

Now the date picker works fine. However if I enter date manually in the textbox some other format like : 2011/03/02 , it automatically changing the date to some junk date : 07/03/0169

If I don't set the date format and try to get the String and parse it in onValueChangeEvent of the textBox, the control doesn't even fire this event as it takes 2011/03/02 as valid date
and changes the text box automatically.

Clueless.. please some one help !!
