As I need fixed adresses, I don't use dhcp, but the removal of
resolv.conf occured, after 2 days of normal working, when I plugged
in my pda, as the system decided, without asking anything, to lauch
then dhcp, to the NM's request I suppose. In fact, it was not really
removed, but replaced by an empty one! How clever...

It's exactly what I said in my previous post, when I spoke of the tendency
to hide all system operations.
