resolvconf problem

Running Kubuntu 11.10. Had resolvconf successfully installed and working
with vpnc. Now I want to turn off Network Manager and configure my IP
address manually in /etc/network/interfaces (the idea is to switch to
bridging for use with virtual machines when that's working). But now
when I start the machine, my /etc/resolv.conf has no DNS servers in it,
although they do appear after I issue "/etc/init.d/networking restart".
/etc/resolvconf/resolv.conf.d/original does have the correct DNS entries
in it.

I do have the dns-* lines in the interfaces file, which looks like this:

auto lo
iface lo inet loopback

iface eth0 inet static

auto eth0

To kill NetworkManager, I commented out everything but the description
line in /etc/init/network-manager.conf and rebooted (since it respawns).

Can anybody help me figure out why the machine doesn't come up with DNS
addresses in resolv.conf and how I can fix that?
