The value of Inet$Resolvers might look odd but it works very well for
NetSurf 2.90 and changing it to the router address or an ISP DNS server does
nothing for NetSurf 3.1 DEV. NetSurf does appear to use the variable, it is
logged.

The root of the current difficulty which occurred at the time of the move to
the CI platform may be down to changes in the libraries used.
