   It was re-setting the resolv.conf to use a DNS server that no longer
existed and not a new DNS server on a new box. I think the NetworkManager
should be configured to stop doing this if some files are already present.
   It is not the only thing that has wasted a lot of my time, the Nepomuk
search facility kept crashing one box by creating a file large enough to
fill all available disc space every few days because it was attempting to
list the enormous number of already indexed files on a 1TByte external
drive. On re-boot the crashed file was deleted by fsck leaving no trace of
problems. I have to go round new boxes turning OFF unwanted facilities
rather than not installing what I do not want.
