When the date format is changed, the 'Time Ago' date/time option does not display correctly in List v3.

Steps to Reproduce

  1. Ensure that you are using List v3.
  2. Navigate to System Properties > System.
  3. In Date format, change to dd/MM/yyyy.
  4. Click Save at the bottom of the properties page.
  5. Click the Settings icon  (upper right corner of the user interface).
  6. In General, change Date/Time to Time Ago.
  7. Close the Settings popup window.
  8. Open a location table or incident table.
  9. Select the Updated field.
    Note that the field is not displayed correctly. For example, it shows "18/02/2015" instead of "a year ago."

    In a related issue, if you select the Compact list date/time option (Settings > General), the time is displayed as "-2015 18:10" instead of "18/02 18:10."
