I was making reference to the Date & Time dialog box that is accessed 
 from the menu that drops from the date/time displayed in the GNOME 
Panel. By default located in the right upper border os the screen.

That dialog has two tabs Date/Time and Clock. In the Clock tab I need 
dçto enable the following options to get the desired effect:

-12 Hour Format
-Montlhy Calendar

If I disable the -Seconds- option the 12H setting is not used by the 
GNOME Panel. If I enable it the format is corrected. To get a near 
perfect behavior/look I need to also enable Date and Month.

I will let it as it is right now, with the seconds ans the date until a 
update fix the bug.
