What could this make happen? In /etc/init.d/ there is nothing like a dhcp

Any idea what makes these two files changing and how to avoid it?
It seems to be a dhcp client (but I don't know why). Have you checked
that pump isn't installed?

Or perhaps resolvconf does this if it is installed (on one of my
machines, it got installed automatically and modified some files,
which was annoying as I use netenv).

Also, you should look at the mtime of the modified files and look
at your log files if something special occurred at this time (or
a few seconds earlier).

Please forgive me if this has already been suggested, but I encountered a similar problem running Lenny. Try getting rid of networkmanager. I actually wound up purging this utility. There are probably more elegant ways to make it behave, but I felt foolish enough after I discovered what was causing the problem that I found the exercise distinctly satisfying.

Hope that helps,
