/etc/resolv.conf replaced!

During the past two days I've had power flickers and outages from snow.  I 
have not yet been able to attach a new system to a UPS (too many things to 
move), and it's lost power a few times.  When it reboots, it cannot 
communicate with the network.  I checked, and /etc/resolv.conf is no longer 
there.  It has been replaced by a link to /etc/resolvconf/run/resolv.conf, 
and /etc/resolvconf/run is linked to /dev/shm/resolvconf.  There is no 
corresponding file in /dev/shm/resolvconf to work with.

I've found references to the other files on Google, but nothing clear telling 
what is going on.  There are references that make me think some program 
*thinks* it is supposed to do this (so I doubt it's a virus), but I need to 
find out what is going on so I can either stop it or make sure it does it 

So how can I stop this from happening at reboot?  What is doing it?  Is it a 
boot thing, or a re-configure thing?

Any help is appreciated.
