Maybe I am reading it wrong, but Martins initial post describes the name 
being as an issue and that the new behaviour has the DHCP or 
set name server in /etc/resolv.conf yet it will consult resolved first. 
This to
me is an issue.

I have /etc/resolv.conf set to on a lot of my hosts and run a 
blown resolver there, but I don't want some daemon that I don't know of 
get in
the way of my DNS request.

So long
