| Surely, it's not related to Trinity.

i kind of figured as much, but in that some (well, one that i know of) of 
the configuration modules (user administration) in the trinity system 
settings suite has not worked for ages, it could be that there was some 
little flakiness there.

| Network Manager is the troublemaker, most probably.

i'm running that version, until 14.04LTS plus the appropriate trinity for 
it come out, wired all the time on this machine.

apparently, it is kosher to replace the linked resolv.conf with a real 
file, but the better method is to add a dns-nameservers line 
to /etc/network/interfaces. so i've done that and we'll see how it fares!

thanks very much.
