Is this on a server Bruce?  I had the same problem with my server 
install and the fix was to put a newer resolv.conf (from 12.04) package 
in.  Unfortunately I didn't save the instructions but if you can search 
this list you should be able to find the thread.  I don't have that many 
posts so you could search for my name.  I think it was about 3 or 4 
months ago.
