The bug number is wrong, as you surmise, I was having a bad day. I've
reopened 635383 and reassigned it to virtualbox. The bug that should
have been closed is 639963, and I've closed that by hand. I've fixed the
changelog for the next upload.

The only reason not to is that writes to /etc/resolv.conf other than
from resolvconf would no longer be picked up in a timely manner.
