I have to say in some ways this seems like a feature not a bug!  I've
long missed the option some other unixes have to inhibit resolving the

option to w, who, finger, and last to not resolve the addresses.

Such options are clearly documented in the man pages for three of those four utilities.

last -i prints IP addresses.
last -d prints resolved hostnames.

w -i or --ip-addr prints IP addresses.

who --ips prints IP addresses instead of hostnames
who --lookup attempts to canonicalize hostnames

There doesn't appear to be a corresponding option for finger.
