September of the year 1752 is also a problem, since the missing Sept 3rd to Sept 13th are also shown in the gnome calendar applet.

For nl_BE (my locale) it should be this way too (missing days in 1582 instead of 1752), according to this site:

For pt_BR the change of Julian calendar to Gregorian calendar should be on 1582. Brazil was a colony of Portugal at the time, and Portugal changed calendars in 1582.

But, instead, cal is wrongly showing the change in 1752.
