It doesn't.  Also keep in mind that wicd can be set for all kinds of 
configurations, such that it may not touch this file even making a connection.  
[I have what appear to be default settings, and this is the behavior I see on 
my home network, for instance.]

/By default/ NM seems to replace /etc/resolv.conf on the first connection 

This entry in the release-notes is aimed for Gnome users that /didn't/ 
previously have network-manager installed, thus may be using wicd.  The first 
thing these users are likely to do is try wicd and find it broken due to the 
conflict, then try NM and find it broken too -- and the connection attempt 
with NM replaces the /etc/resolv.conf file, where wicd may not.
