This is a problem with your locale, i.e. your language, time and date format. I don't remember exactly what it looks like in 10.04, but you should be able to find it in the System menu. In 12.04, it's called "Language Support".

Make sure your language settings are correct and that you have installed the languages you're using. You should also apply your changes to the entire system. In 12.04 this is called "Apply System-Wide".
