These setting are for the specific user of that account. So maybe you need
a user for KMyMoney and another user for your other work if it conflicts.

I agree I now have a 4 digit year, but it's far from ideal when entering

You can also invoke kmymoney with a specific environment variable set at
another value than the default for your language. The one that comes to my
mind is LC_TIME. You can put a .desktop file for kmymoney in your Desktop
folder and insert "LC_TIME=<different locale specification> " right after
"Exec=" in that .desktop file.
I suggest you experiment with a few locale specifications.
I've eventually settled for <tt>LC_TIME=af_ZA</tt> (South African)
as an environment variable for KMyMoney. It gives me proper short
ISO (YYYY-MM-DD) with month names in the date picker which are
similar enough to Dutch.<br>
Thanks for everyone's help!<br>
