It appears that this bug has existed for a while and has just recently been reported by a user.
IOW: maybe accessing  the 'Apply as Filter' and 'Prepare a Filter' 
functionality via the 'Analyze' dropdown isn't used much.
So: Given that there's already a lot of choices on the 'Analyze' 
drop-down, perhaps we should consider just removing these items (as well 
as 'Apply as Column' ?) from the 'Analyze' drop-down.
Obviously the functionality would continue to be accessible via the 
context menu attached to fields in the packet-details pane.
Opinions ?
