Following "Mail Lists"' suggestion I filled in the DNS field in the
nm-applet, after selecting the appropriate DHCP method. After restarting
NM I see that resolv.conf now says:

$ cat /etc/resolv.conf
# Generated by NetworkManager
nameserver 127.0.0.1

which is encouraging. We'll see if it stays that way and isn't
overwritten.
