I just tried that but unfortunately could not reproduce the problem. I've used the same version as yours I suppose - RadControls for WPF Q2 2008. Can you please confirm that?
Do you get the error in a clean WPF window xaml with the DatePicker only? Or if the problematic scenario is more complicated, can you please elaborate more on that or paste the xaml which we can try locally? Thank you.
