Calendar First Day of Week for Siebel Thick Client users is displayed incorrectly

On a Siebel installation for ESN language, it was set to start week in Calendar control on Monday(= Lunes).
The same was defined for ESN in Regional Settings at OS level.
But for Mobile or Dedicated Client users, it continues to show Calendar starting on Sunday (=Do).

Similar behaviour could be seen for other non-ENU Clients - i.e. DEU, FRA etc

Under normal circumstances, it would be expected to see the Regional setting definition being applied consistently also for the Mobile or Dedicated Clients.

The issue can be reproduced at will in Customer's environment with the following steps:
1. Make the required Locale changes for that language (ESN) - on server-side;
2. Run required tasks initializing the Local DBF(s) for an user (for Local DBF) or use Dedicated mode (connecting to Server Data Source);
3. Check and compare the Calendar control behaviour on Mobile / Dedicated Web Client vs. Server session for same records (i.e. Activity).

Due to this issue, Mobile or Dedicated Client users may select the wrong dates from the Calendar control.
This is a minor usability issue as data could still be entered - but it would require additional attention from end-users to ensure that dates added/changed are correct.
