When I do this on XP, the names do appear, but only in the IP-details
on the "Packet Details" pane. 

However, when I enable "network layer" name resolution and save
my preferences and then reload the trace, the names are visible in 
all the panes. So you do have a way of getting the names on your
screen :)

Just like you I would've expected that selecting "Resolve Name" would
make the names for the currently selected frame visible on all panes.
Do we need to file this as a bug or is it "works as designed"?

Cheers,
