[Resolvconf-devel] Bug#519947: resolvconf destroys /etc/resolv.conf on every boot

Justification: breaks unrelated software
after installing resolvconf (because it is recommended by vpnc), my file /etc/resolv.conf was overwritten by only a comment that the file should not be edited by hand. Because it contained no information about nameserver configuration, all resolution of DNS host names did not work anymore. To make DNS resolution work again, I restored my old /etc/resolv.conf, but after the next reboot, the file again only contained the comment mentioned above.
I think that this bug is critical, as it makes networking nearly unusable. Surely, most users do not want to type in IP addresses.
