I am trying to use CultureInfo.CurrentCulture.DateTimeFormat.ShortDatePattern
to obtain the local specific short date pattern.

I am in Australia and I have configured my iPhone device for Australia so I was
expecting the ShortDatePattern to be dd/MM/yyyy. However, the call to
ShortDatePattern is returning MM/dd/yyyy (US Format).

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. var format = CultureInfo.CurrentCulture.DateTimeFormat.ShortDatePattern;
2. console.writeline(date.ToString(format)); // Date = 01/11/2009 (AUS format)

Actual Results:  

Expected Results:
