that's odd; I just tried that and got:

******* go shopping
        <2010-03-17 Wed 09:00>
which then shows in the agenda as:

  agenda:      9:00...... go shopping

me too! 

Do you get any better behaviour if you just put 9:00 or 09:00?  Would be
good to resolve this in case there is a bug lurking elsewhere...

Certainly I'd be in agreement with that, as I don't want to jump on
others preferences.  

Currently, org-agenda.el has (l 7079)

        (if org-agenda-search-headline-for-time

to check whether we should extract the time; how about if I replaced it
with a variable called org-agenda-extract-time-from-entry which defaults
to nil so this behaviour is normally off?

Sorry about this Matt.
