I just re-read the FAQ and it looks like I've got it:
The second thing that might cause this error is:

"You use BIND and your local nameserver is not responding.
Solution: Delete /etc/resolv.conf. "

I don't use BIND on my own machine, but I've got a /etc/resolv.conf that 
points to a nameserver I use when I'm connected to the net via PPP.

How can I avoid deleting my /etc/resolv.conf?
Should I make the ppp-up script copy something to /etc/resolv.conf and the
ppp-down script delete this again?
