Issues with changing year on windows form calendar control

I have a windows form in a vb.net project that has a calendar control on it.

When I try to change the year by using the spin button control the months are sometimes displayed with only the dates that are equal to or less than the date selected.

For example, I bring up the form and September 2010 is displayed with the current date of the 8th selected. I go to the spin button and change year to 2009. The control now displays only the 30, 31, 1, 2,3,4,5,6,7 and 8 (the 8 is cut off).  If I click on the control a few times all the days of the month are displayed.  

I was really hoping to scroll through the years with all dates displayed.

Is there a way to do this?

I can re-produce it even in vb 2010. I believe it's a bug. Use DateTimePicker instead.
