finance ExDividendDate tag broken

I am writing a finance application and have attempted to download some data for a single stock (e.g. Microsoft) via the following YQL query.

http://query.yahooapis.com/v1/public/yql?q=select%20*%20from%20yahoo.finance.quotes%20where%20symbol%20in%20(%22MSFT%22)&env=<store://datatables.org/alltableswithkeys>

The abridged output is here: < ExDividendDate > Feb 18< / ExDividendDate > This data also matches the csv style query here:

http://finance.yahoo.com/d/quotes.csv?s=MSFT&f=sq

However, this data does not match the value on the yahoo finance page for a stock

http://finance.yahoo.com/q?s=msft Ex-Dividend Date: 13-May-14

Incidentally, the 13-May-14 date is correct. The dates returned by the APIs are incorrect.
