Sorry: this was premature; it stopped working shortly afterwards.
However, after further research and comparison with a different
computer on which things were working, I found that I had an older
version of /etc/ppp/ip-up.d/0dns-up. For some reason this didn't seem to
have been upgraded, even after doing apt-get reinstall. I therefore
copied the later version into place and this (I think!) has made things
work as they should.
