This now appears to be fixed in PR1.1/2.2009.51-1. I just added a birthday of 4

Thanks for reporting this.

Well it seems to be fixed someway but not completely. The widget shows now only
the current day, not the coming ones.

Just tested this and there may be a "refresh" issue with the widget but
otherwise it (and this bug resolution) seems fine.
1. Current date is 14 Jan 2010
2. Add a new birthday of 14 Jan 1985 to a contact and click Save
3. Look at the dashboard Calendar widget - birthday for contact is showing as
4. Change birthday of the same contact to 15 Jan 1985, and Save
5. Look at the dashboard Calendar widget - birthday for contact is still
showing as "Today"
6. Tap on Calendar widget - confirm birthday for contact is 15 Jan 2010, close
Calendar (and return to desktop widget)
7. Widget now displays correct birthday of contact as 15 Jan 2010.
I repeated the 4 through 7 advancing one day at a time until 29 Jan 2010 when
the widget (after manually "refreshing") stopped displaying the
birthday/contact so it appears the widget is showing birthdays occurring during
the next 14 days (in my test case, birthdays in the period 14 Jan 2010 -> 28
Obviously I'm testing with new birthdays that I have added to contact after
this has been fixed in 51-1... I have a birthday for a contact of 29 Jan that
was added before I upgraded to 51-1, this should - hopefully - appear in the
widget automatically tomorrow (or maybe Saturday).
It's now Friday 15 Jan 02:53 and the smart birthday for 29 Jan has now appeared
in my desktop calendar widget... I'd say this is now working in 2.2009.51-1,
unless there is some step we are missing from this bug report.
The only "bug" I can see in 2.2009.51-1 - and which would need it's own bug
report - is that the Calendar widget does not automatically recognise when a
birth date is changed in the Contacts database. Since people don't often change
their date of birth this could, in my opinion, be considered a relatively minor
issue that is hardly worth addressing.
