Subject: done todos only date stamped, not date-time stamped

Hi all,

I'm about a week into using emacs, so I might have overlooked 
something simple. :-)

I've been looking at org-mode and it seems like it will serve me well. 
  I do, however, have a bit of puzzlement over the feature whereby 
todo items can be marked as done.

According to the tutorial 
<http://dto.freeshell.org/notebook/OrgTutorial.html>, when a todo item 
is marked as done via the C-c C-t keystrokes, it should get stamped 
with a date and time of completion (e.g., ``CLOSED: [2006-05-04 Thu 

Unfortunately, I get only a datestamp, without time data (e.g., `` 
CLOSED: [2007-07-11 Wed]'').

To rule out conflicts with other settings in my .emacs, I have tried 
launching emacs with a .emacs that reads, in its entirety:

(add-to-list 'auto-mode-alist '("\\.org$" . org-mode))
(define-key global-map "\C-cl" 'org-store-link)
(define-key global-map "\C-ca" 'org-agenda)
(setq org-log-done t)

(The tutorial's suggested ``(require 'org-install)'' produces an error 
``An error has occurred while loading `/home/brian/.emacs':

File error: Cannot open load file, org-install'')

This did not resolve the problem.

I have no org.el on my system, and my weak, largely read-only lisp 
isn't up to the task of making sense of org.elc.

I am using GNU Emacs with Org-mode version 4.56 on ubuntu 7.04.

I am aware that there are more recent version of org-mode available. 
But, as I am very new to emacs, I've never upgraded an emacs package, 
and thought I ought to check here first before forging ahead myself. I 
also am not enthusiastic about updating emacs itself and thus getting 
off my distro's package management. I am willing to try either if it 
is suggested here, though.

A good google and a browse of this lists archives didn't cast any 
light. So, any suggestions for how I can I get time information in the 
timestamp appended to done todo items?

Thanks and best,

Brian vdB
