Payment 'details' not showing in bank nominal accounts

If I enter a payment and type a description under 'details' it does not show in the bank nominal account. Only the payment 'reference' shows. Makes investigating postings difficult and I would have thought this is why the details field exists. Think this only effects the bank nominal account strangely.

    Noticed this when we added Other Payment. We used the Details/Description in Instant Account to search on specific payments so it was quite useful. I'm told we can only search on Reference, which is a bit strange considering that is an optional field. Normally, the Reference field would reflect the Transaction type from our Bank Statement. So searching on this will show up various payments but we don't know which one is which because the resulting Name column is empty. It would be useful to a) search by Details and b) show the Details under the Name column in the search results.
