I have set DEFAULT_TYPE = above.
When I add a comment, I get this:
(its actually 05 Nov)
Actually it adds the right date, twice.
Of course it is wrong. The template is defined to add %DATE% %SERVERTIME%, which used to add the GM date and time. The spec of these tags has been corrected, so it now adds the GM date/time followed by the server date/time.
Fixed in SVN 7427
