This is a NM enhancement request, not really a bug. As a workaround, you should
try to use the dispatcher.d feature (see comment #6 and #7 of bug 182011).

The problem with this is that the bug is not so much as that one because the
dispatcher script it doesn't gets called when I bring up my VPN, only when I
connect or disconnect from Wireless and so.
Comment 3 Denis Leroy 2007-12-18 11:24:48 EST
Sorry to hear the workaround doesn't work for you. still, overriding resolv.conf
is very much the expected behavior, since the DNS info comes from the vpn server
on the other side. NM could provide options to add additional custom DNs info,
and that's an enhancement requiest which is exactly what 182011 is about.
