Yes, I tried that after your post on the subject but it didn't work
for me (my problem is similar but subtly different). I did reply to
your post at the time, shout if it never turned up.

I've always understood this to be correct behaviour (ie specifying two
DNS servers will pick one and stick with it until it can't reach it,
not try one then try the other if it didn't get a successful lookup
(was was able to talk to the server).

I only have one DNS setting, but yes it is set via DHCP. (At that bit
works: I can resolve anything with a dot in it but nothing without!)
