This is exactly were I've mad my preferred settings. And it does work in 
that panel. I mean I see my changes taking effect on the bottom of the 
panel itself.

However Digital Clock respects Date format as set in "Date & Time" but 
does not respect Time format and instead keeps showing time in 24 hours 

Anybody knows were Digital Clock keeps its settings. It might provide 
helpful to delete existing settings and thus to force it to refresh 
itself. But I have no idea where to look for them.
