Those settings are only applied if they're not already set in the 
database--they're locale defaults for new databases/hosts.  Because you 
created your database/configured your host before we had locale 
defaults, you didn't get the locale-appropriate value.

So, you'll need to edit the value--just go into MythWeb's settings 
editor and change the data for the value with the name David E. 
mentioned in his post.
