Some locale related issues with wikibits.js were broughtr up by User:Alex Smotrov in sections 4, 5 and 6 of this page:
The issue stems from the fact that month names (and their abbreviations) differ across locales.
I forgot to add that the issue may warrant (IMO) making the file editable on a per-locale wiki basis.
That can be localised by defining on MediaWiki:Common.js a new ts_dateToSortKey() which will override the previous one (like used eg. on eswiki).
Would be desirable to have that automatically based on $wgContentLanguage though.
Also see bug 20418.
fixed in patch for Bug 8028
