I already used that to set the date/time format I want, what I'm asking
about is a *second* Orage entry appearing in the panel when I click on
the date/time I've created for orage clock.

I don't think I have a 'notification area'.
What I have in the panel when I start up is just an "Orage Panel Clock"
display showing date/time on the panel. When I hover the mouse pointer
over it I get a box with a fuller time/date display in it. When I click
on it the Orage calendar window pops up (as it should) but *in addition*
an *extra* Orage icon appears in the panel, this extra icon doesn't
disappear when I close the Orage calendar window. I don't want this
When I hover the mouse pointer over the unwanted/extra icon the tooltip
displays the "Next active alarms". If I right click on it I get the
menu with Orage preferences etc. on it, there is also a 'quit' which
gets rid of the icon. If I click on the quit then do a 'ps' I see a
defunct orage process left behind.

All those defunct orage processes are due to me clicking on the orage
clock date/time in the panel, doing something in the orage calendar,
then closing the calendar window and finally getting fed up with the
extra/unwanted icon in the panel and quitting that.
