  Network manager fails to set domain server in some circumstances

Status in network-manager package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  Occasionally, after a resume from an update, network manager starts
  behaving strangely, not setting the DomainServer for the network.

  This happens when resuming the laptop to a location where:
  - an additional ethernet card (which is the one to use) is attached via USB
  - configuring that ethernet card NM is set up to clone a given mac address 
and get addresses only from dhcp, while the dns server is set manually in the 
network manager configuration
  - there are also free wifi signals to which NM tends to connect

  In this setup, NM fails to set the dns name in dnsmasq

  The issue gets worked around by either

  1) Using qdbus to call the dnsmasq dbus method to set the domain
  server. In this case the solution is temporary. Namely when NM is
  asked to disconnect from the net and then to reconnect, the issue
  comes again; or

  2) Killing dnsmasq. In this case, dnsmasq ia automatically restarted
  and everything starts working fine; or

  3) Restarting NM itself.
