After your anonymous users have submitted, just change that setting to show user names and there they all are.

If you publish InfoPath forms to SharePoint, or this may even happen if you put them in other network locations, you may find that when making an update to the form, some users continue to see the old version. I recently tracked this down as being caused by InfoPath caching a version of the form on the users computer.
