Quite a lot of applications even on unixes will only read
/etc/resolv.conf once when they start running.  So long-lived
desktops could have applications that haven't updated yet.

Short of forcing reboots I don't think there's much to do than to
wait, and finally cut it out when you can't wait anymore and the
last 2-3 people have to restart their apps.
