I know resolvconf is supposed to manage it, but in 2008.8 it didn't. By 
default usb0 is up, so resolvconf should have populates it with a suitable 
resolver, but instead it is empty. In 2008.8 resolvconf didn't populate it 
with the nameserver supplied by dhcp when the wifi interface was brought up. 
I don't know if this is still the case in 2008.9.
