Hi Nathan, the display of identity is separated in 2 fields and 3 values.
The three values are:
    - the RingID,
    - the registered username (if any),
    - the alias configured in the profile.

For the sake of readability the RingID has the least priority of display,
then comes the registered username, and finally the alias.
When the alias is displayed the second field is activated, and shows
either the RingID or the registered username to allow contact identification.

The switch from RingID/username to a name is made when the contact infos are 
which is at the start of a call with the reception of the peer vCard.

If the list entries have the same RingIDs, they are not supposed to be 
If it is the case could you provide a reproduction scenario for correction

When does a contact displayed name change from the ring id to a name?

Maybe allow the client to manually create a nickname in case of same peer names.

I submitted a contact request and my peer accepted, but the ring id
still showed until I started a call or something.
Even then, there were 2 instances of the same conversation listed in
the conversation tab, 1 with the ring id, the other with the name.
Adding/removing contact was jacked in this case, but after gnome
crashed (from a previous report), the contact and conversation is
showing correctly.
