The default value of diary-european-date-forms obviously tries to
support times of the form "10:00", "10am", "10AM", "10pm", "10PM".

The various elements of said form should be mutually exclusive but
aren't, as the OP demonstrates.

This seemed like a valid bug report to me, but I never cared enough to
do anything about it.

IMO applying the suggested fix or leaving it open would be better than
closing it due to a bouncing email.
