Public bug reported:

Binary package hint: network-manager-kde

I use vpnc and have resolvconf package loaded to allow vpnc to update
dns.   Network manager is replacing the symbolic link /etc/resolv.conf
-> /etc/resolvconf/run/resolv.conf with a new (non-symbolic linked)
/etc/resolv.conf this prevents resolvconf from updating DNS settings as
it requires resolv.conf to be symbolic-link file.   if I delete the
/etc/resolv.conf file and symbolic link it to
/etc/resolvconf/run/resolv.conf my vpn works fine and updates dns as
expected, however if I reboot my machine the symbolic file is replaced
by a new file that isn't symbolically linked to
resolvconf/run/resolv.conf file.

network manager should update the resolv.conf file not replace it.
