1.27.91 blows away existing dns nameservers when VPN activates
After upgrading to from 1.27.90 to 1.27.91 (Debian/sid), I've found that connecting to my VPN causes
nameserver setting to disappear from /etc/resolv.conf. This leaves me with no DNS servers configured at all (I have the VPN's
DNS / Automatic toggle disabled).
# Generated by NetworkManager nameserver 192.168.1.1
After connecting (actual search domains obfuscated):
# Generated by NetworkManager search foo bar baz
I've downgraded back to 1.27.90 which restores the desired behavior of retaining the existing nameserver setting:
# Generated by NetworkManager search foo bar baz nameserver 192.168.1.1
This looks to be an intentional change: f10e4fe8 Indeed, reverting that patch fixes the issue for me. However, it seems there's got to be a better solution than to leave the user with no DNS at all after upgrade.
