Not /run/resolv.conf, /etc/resolv.conf.  On some systems, it may be a 
link. I nuked the link and made a real file that contained 'hosts,dns' 
as I use hosts files for local dns on my little network, only using dhcp 
for transient connections. I also did the chattr +i on that, 
and /etc/network/interfaces back when you couldn't remove NM, so that 
was my way of disabling that monster.

Frowned on in strong language by TPTB here, but no stronger than NM 
caused when it tears a perfectly good network connection down and then 
fails to invent one that works. DNS is defined 
in /etc/network/interfaces as the gateway, which is my router, so any 
addresses not in my /etc/hosts file are forwarded to DD-WRT in the 
router, which is the only place my ISP's supplied dns servers are used.

Now, watch the firestorm because I mentioned NM in less than glowing
