In Wireshark 1.8.0 and earlier versions, one could expand the Ethernet portion
of a frame, right-click on either the source or destination MAC address, and
select "Resolve Name," or expand the IPv4 portion, right-click on either the
source or destination IP address, and select "Resolve Name."

In either case, the MAC addresses would be resolved to the friendly names
listed in the ethers file, if any, or the OUI portion would be resolved to the
vendor's friendly name; and the IP addresses would be resolved using normal
hosts file/DNS IP address name resolution.

In version 1.9.0-SVN-43549, this no longer works. Right-clicking on a MAC
address or IP address and selecting "Resolve Name" has no effect.

This same behavior has been observed using the PortableApps version of
Wireshark on Windows XP.
