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 :-)
