Hi there and thanks very much for the additional information.

The mere absence of a file /etc/resolv.conf is not a bug.  This is an
allowed situation if there is no nameserver information; the resolver does
not require the file to be present.

But from the fact that you are reporting here I infer that something worked
before and no longer works in 1.62.

* Is there some piece of software which relies upon the target of
/etc/resolv.conf existing?  What software?
* Or is there information missing from (the absent) /etc/resolv.conf?  If
so, what information is missing and when is it missing?
