Public bug reported:

1) on a »Ubuntu 16.04.4 LTS« with static ip configuration in 
/etc/network/interfaces and manual entries in /etc/resolv.conf
2) network-manager 1.2.6-0ubuntu0.16.04.2 is enabled but doesn’t manage any 
interfaces and therefore doesn’t start dnsmasq

3) using hostnamectl and updating /etc/hosts doesn’t break dns

4) changing the hostname however triggers NetworkManager to start
dnsmasq and overwrite /etc/resolv.conf

Workarounds are chattr’ing /etc/resolv.conf or – in this case –
disabling NetworkManager but i think this shouldn’t happen.

cat /etc/NetworkManager/NetworkManager.conf
