Yes normally network-manager modifies  this file as soon as availible
nameservers changed in different networks being connected to at a given
time. You can configure network-manager only using the same
dns-nameservers but these should than be availible from any network you
are getting conected to.

As i conclude from your new mail you use networ-manager-gnome or
network-manager-kde after all?

In this case and before making any changes to your /etc/resolv.conf yuu
should REMOVE all stanzas from those interfaces which you wish to be
configured by the network-manager. Normally these means deleting all
entries except the "lo"-entry.

The network-manager configures all interfaces automatically which are
NOT already configured in the "/etc/network/interfaces"

Make these changes and see if it makes a different!
