Amaya 9.4 installed on Windows XP Professional SP2 with Swedish 
locale and short date preference set to yyyy-mm-dd gives:

2006-02-17 which is correct.

17-02-2006 which is incorrect. In this case Amaya should pick up the 
preferred format from the system preferences, i.e. in this case 
yyyy-mm-dd. Why the Amaya team chose the dd-mm-yyyy format for the 
non-ISO 8601 format is beyond me.
