You seem to assume that the user can not influence the ndots option in the resolv.conf if the corresponding host is to use some other data delivered by dhcp (i.e. for building resolv.conf). For certain setups this can be true, probably meaning that they [rely on a non-existent standard and] do not bother having proper control over resolv.conf? Otherwise, in a general case, we disagree. Isn't it reasonable that people wishing to use extra and "somewhat/potentially expensive" features of resolv.conf have to put effort into actually activating them? Regards, Rune
