Version: Fails to maintain static DNS
Severity: normal

Under the appropriate stanza for my wireless network in
wireless-settings.conf, I have

    use_global_dns = True

I have global_dns_1,...,global_dns_3 set in manager-settings.conf.
This network is configured to use DHCP.

When I first connect to the wireless network, the appropriate static DNS
values get copied into /etc/resolv.conf. However, after having been
connected to the network for some time, the contents of /etc/resolv.conf
get replaced by


(the gateway's IP address) which is an immmediate practical problem,
because the that gateway's resolver is *very very slow*. It's also a
problem in general, because if I configure static DNS servers via WICD,
I expect them to be used for the duration of the connection.

I'm not sure where to start looking to debug this, so please let me know
what additional debugging information I can provide to help.
