IIUC, on a basic installation, nothing should be touching resolv.conf
except for things that you configure explicitly.  There are several
packages that will alter it: resolvconf, IIUC, the GUI network
configuration utilities (NM, wicd, etc), and anything you put
in /etc/network/interfaces.  What network configuration utilities do
you have installed?  What's your interfaces file?
