running resolvconf -u in a chroot says 'ignoring request' but then breaks /etc/resolv.conf by clearing all nameserver entries. See steps to reproduce.

Additional info:
* package version(s)
- openresolv 3.7.0-1
* config and/or log files etc.
- None relevant

Steps to reproduce (tried on a boot of the install media):
test / $ cat /etc/resolv.conf
# Generated by resolvconf
search local
test / $ resolvconf -u
Running in chroot, ignoring request.
test / $ cat /etc/resolv.conf
# Generated by resolvconf
search local
