Winbox queues column missing?

I have a RB500 running 2.9.6, and a PC running 2.9.18. When viewing the queues, the later version does not show the Destination Address column. Sometime between 2.9.6 and 2.9.18, was the Destination Address column dropped from the Queues list when using winbox?

I have not seen a sensible suggestion how this could be worked around - if someone has one, I'm sure MikroTik will consider doing this...

swapping interface cards (and suggestion)

Ive noticed in some cases that when I swap out a PCI ethernet interface card (on a PC based machine), the MT OS loses track of interface names, as well as ip addressses, routes, etc associated with that interface. Obviously its difficult for the OS to make accurate assumptions about what name should...
