Not for me running English UI with Finish locales ;)

POSIX locale. Specifications for US/UK say you use 12 hour time.

Nothing is broken, all works as specified ;)

As I said, we migh look into it, but AFAIK this would mean we either
modify the current locale (really nasty) or create a pseudo-locale with
the user setting (just nasty). Unless someone has better idea or
understanding of the POSIX locales. Either way, I'd feel we would be the
only UNIX system doing this (does OSX do it too?). Ideas welcome.
