kinda dumb dired/ls question

I run an emacs instance as "mike" and a second separate instance sometimes
as root.  I point root's ~/.emacs to load stuff from mike's *.elc.

In mike's ~/.emacs there is:

(setq dired-actual-switches (concat "-alo --time-style=+'%b %e %y %H:%M'"))

mike also uses a tcsh alias for /bin/ls:

    alias l  '/bin/ls -lo --color=tty --time-style=+"%b %e %y %H:%M"  \!* && 
echo ""'

These give me the exact ls output I want either in tcsh and dired.

However, although the same shell alias works for root I cannot get root's
emacs instance to use it (in dired).  What is (seemingly) ignored in
root's emacs instance is the "--time*."  I've even pasted in the above
setq as the last line in root's ~/.emacs but root's dired buffers are not
using "--time*".  

I've been through much gnashing of teeth trying to get it to work but
can't and don't see what I'm missing.  Anyone know?  Or maybe can tell me
how to get the root instance to append "--time*" to its dired ls?
