Problem with using tags for creating custom filenames for recorded TV.

Setup Section:
Setup-Television-Recording-Custom Paths and Filenames

Leading zeroes are dropped for:

and probably others.

when generating filenames.

For example:
%startday% - the 9th day of the month generates '9' rather than '09'

%startmonth% - the sixth month generates '6' rather than '06'.

The tags show the correct 2 digit month and day in the Sample: field but the filenames generated are incorrect.

To recreate:
Start MediaPortal
Record Now

The generated filename is:
SEVEN MORNING NEWS(2006-6-19 10.30).dvr-ms

The format specified is:
[%title%][ %name%][ S%series%E%episode% %part%](%startyear%-%startmonth%-%startday% %starthh%.%startmm%)

This problem makes it difficult to sort.

Similarly, %date% generates dd_mm_yyyy - it would be much better if it generated yyyy_mm_dd
