If I select "Arrange By > Name" in "Column View" in any window, nothing happens. This is a massive inconvenience. I attached an image of a finder window of my applications below, in which the Column view with arrange by Name is configured, but the applications haven't been resorted by name.


It will arrange by name in Icon and List views, but not in Column view. Does anyone know how to solve this? Is it a glitch inherent to OS X Lion that Apple didn't catch?
