I can approve this. To override the DNS server list, there has to be an
open line. Without it, there is nothing to override from. Without
correct DNS servers triggering the line to go up isn't that easy for
most people.

They can:
* give m0n0 a correct list of DNS servers
* use DynDNS (m0n0 forces the line to go up with an entry for DynDNS)
* send a ping to the outside :-(

So, this isn't really a bug, but not very beautiful, too.
