Random population in jQuery masked field

I am using jQuery.maskedInput-1.2.2.js.

A DOB field is masked as below:
$('.dob').mask("??99/99/9999");

The DOB field has the following details:
<div class="formItem">
  <s:date name="personBean.dob" var="formatvalue"
  format="MM/dd/yyyy" />
  <s:textfield key="form.common.label.dob" name="personBean.dob"
  value="%{#formatvalue}" labelSeparator="" size="20" id="dob"
  cssClass="required dob dateOfBirth" disabled="%{submittedFlag}" />
</div>

I am having an issue. Say, the user entered only last four digits 2000 and tab away. The value now converts to 20/00. The moment he comes back and clicks on the input field, random values are populated in that field e.g 20/00/_000. How to fix this problem?

Hi mplungjan,

I did the following changes:

<script type="text/javascript" src="template/js/jquery.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript" src="template/js/jquery.inputmask.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript" src="template/js/jquery.inputmask.extensions.js"></script>

Also changed the mask as below:

$('.dob').inputmask("mm/dd/yyyy");

But the problem still persists. Please advise.

Do you have a test page?

Or a jsfiddle.net?
