Problems with last_name, first_name addon feature in Odoo 7

I installed the partner_firstname (last_name) app after I had entered my customers and suppliers.  Then I edited all customers and suppliers to put the last name and first name in the proper entry place.  In the list view(s) it lists as I had originally entered as "firstname lastname".  When I select an entry it remembers the changes in first_name and last_name fields.  If I enter a NEW customer or supplier it will show it as "lastname firstname" in list view(s).  How do I get consistency?

Oh, a related issue:  if I change a customer or supplier name it is remembered in the individual record, but NOT in the list view(s).  This becomes an issue if a customer or supplier gets married and takes the spouse's name.  How to get the changed name into the list view(s)?

Someone with karma please close?
