Package: resolvconf
Version: 1.46
Severity: normal

I use ppp for my comapny's VPN.  I could be delusional, but I'm pretty sure
that specifying usepeerdns used to cause the vpn nameservers to be added to
/etc/resolv.conf, and then upon disconnet for them to be removed.  When I
upgraded from 1.45 to 1.46 last week, this stopped being the case.
