Date field reformats too quickly - very annoying to clients

I have a client who is having trouble using the date field. Especially if they come to edit a user record (that has a dob field) that is filled and they need to change the year say from 2001 to 1985 - Going back month by month would take ages, yet the field has such a quick reformat on it that it becomes impossible just to enter a new number.

The simplest way is to highlight the year before it reformat and opens the date picker, but if you don’t go like lightning it reformats often ending up with for eg:

01/01/0001 as you didn’t get the 1985 in quick enough.

Is this supposed to be how it works or am I missing something?
