Well, I've looked at "man resolv.conf", and I don't see how it could
work with curly braces around the domain name. I also don't know any way
that the net-tools -> iproute2 transition would have affected this,
since /etc/resolv.conf is only used by the resolver library that comes
as part of glibc.
Hopefully Jim will jump in and enlighten me :-)
