In there it says only some programs will support 24-hours, so I don't think this is a bug.

I got advised that this is a bug, not respecting locales (internationalization is weak/missing/wrong). I'll upstream.

From the upstream bug:

"Assuming you really mean locale, this is a bug in the translation, not in Tomboy itself.

We do some pretty printing of dates, and all the formatting strings are translatable."

What is en_DK? I don't see an upstream translation for that locale.
