I didn't change my nameservers.  *Something* is changing them while I'm
still connected to my VPN, which means that I can't access anything via
DNS after about 15 minutes of being connected.  I either have to
disconnect the VPN, or manually change the resolv.conf back to the
proper settings for my VPN connection (which will get overwritten again
in 15 minutes).  Annoying, to say the least.
