Thanks for fixing this.
Is this somehow possible with only one prompt:
- to be prompted for the date of the event or the date and time /
time range of the appointment.
- the event/appointment to be recorded in a date tree under it's
respective date, not under today.
- having a timestamp in the resulting heading
- to see the respective time (range) information in the agenda if
there is any.
I managed to to this without the date tree but with one level one
heading for each entry. That's a bit more like Emacs diary, but
I like the date tree because it's hides more information:
(org-capture-templates (quote ( ("d" "diary the Org way" entry (file
"~/org/diary.org") "* %? %^T %^g"))))

P.S.: sorry to Bastien for first replying to him instead of the
list: user input mistake.
