Steps to reproduce:

2. Unlock the settings
3. Select DNS tab
4. Click "add" adjacent to search domains
5. Fill in field
6. Click close
7. ping a short name > works
8. goto /etc/resolv.conf
9. Domain search names listed in the following format:
search domain.dom enterprise.dom local.dom

10. Reboot
11. Open System->Administration->Network
12. Go to DNS tab
13. Search domains appear correctly.
14. ping a short name > doesn´t work
15. go to /etc/resolv.conf
16. Domain search names are now listed in the following format:
search domain.dom, enterprise.dom, local.dom
