  DNS domain search paths not updated when VPN started

Bug description:
  I connect to work with openvpn through network-manager-openvpn.  I'm
  selecting automatic (DHCP) to get an IP address, and "Use this
  connection only for resources on its network" to support split

  In the last few versions of Ubuntu I used, this all worked fine.  In
  Ubuntu 17.10 (fresh install, not upgrade) I can access hosts on both
  my VPN network and the internet, BUT I have to use FQDN for my VPN
  network hosts: the updates to the DNS search path provided by my VPN
  DHCP server are never being applied.

  Investigating the system I see that /etc/resolv.conf is pointing to
  /run/systemd/resolve/stub-resolv.conf and that resolv.conf does not
  have any of the VPN's search path settings in it:

    # This file is managed by man:systemd-resolved(8). Do not edit.
    # is the systemd-resolved stub resolver.
    # run "systemd-resolve --status" to see details about the actual 

    search home

  In previous versions of Ubuntu, where NetworkManager controlled the
  resolver not systemd, /etc/resolv.conf pointed to
  /run/NetworkManager/resolv.conf and there was a local dnsmasq instance
  that managed all the complexity.  In Ubuntu 17.10 when I look in
  /run/NetworkManager/resolv.conf file, I see that the search paths ARE
  properly updated there:

    $ cat /run/NetworkManager/resolv.conf 
    # Generated by NetworkManager
    search internal.mycorp.com other.mycorp.com home

  However this file isn't being used, and also there's no dnsmasq
  running on the system so if I switch my /etc/resolv.conf to point to
  this file instead, then all lookups fail.

  Strangely, if I look at the systemd-resolv status I see that in theory
  systemd-resolve does seem to know about the proper search paths:

    $ systemd-resolve --status
    Link 3 (tun0)
          Current Scopes: DNS LLMNR/IPv4 LLMNR/IPv6
           LLMNR setting: yes
    MulticastDNS setting: no
          DNSSEC setting: no
        DNSSEC supported: no
             DNS Servers:
              DNS Domain: ~internal.mycorp.com

  but for whatever reason the search domains are not getting put into
  the resolv.conf file:

    $ host mydesk
    ;; connection timed out; no servers could be reached

    $ host mydesk.internal.mycorp.com
    mydesk.internal.mycorp.com has address

  (BTW, the timeout in the failed attempt above takes 10s: it is SUPER
  frustrating when all your host lookups are taking that long just to
