Results of a $clonefish->getElementValues() call:
array (
  'fulldateiso' => '2018-01-22',
  'fulldateisogt' => '2018-01-22',
  'fulldate' => '01/22/2018',
  'fulltime' => '2018-01-22 01:13:01',

There are cases when the above arrays are different. This is not a bug, but a feature: clonefish was written to help with everyday form hassles (like avoiding the missing value of an unchecked checkbox or compiling the whole date string from date selector fields).
