Labels are not displayed for some ESRI shapefiles including ones created by ogr2ogr.
The fields and data are shown in the attribute table inside QGIS but they are not rendered with the features.
Data used : city shapefiles from ESRI World Base Map. (http://www.esri.com/data/download/basemap/index.html)
Even after stripping down the shapefile to just CITY_NAME with ogr2ogr QGIS would still not render the labels but is quite happy to show it to me in the attribute table.
This problem has been around for a couple of releases and is still in version 0.7.4
