Oh, okay. I just wanted to be sure the "dhclient" process was aware of
the changes done in the file :-)

That was going to be my next question: if the file is being read at all.
As so it seems, then is just that specific line that fails or that has no
visible effect, meaning your "/etc/resolv.conf" file remains the same,
Let me try it in wheezy. Mmm, here it works :-?
I use N-M with a wireless card and I have edited "/etc/dhcp/
dhclient.conf" and set:
prepend domain-name-servers 127.0.0.1;
Then restarted the NM service ("service network-manager restart") and
checked for the content of "/etc/resolv.conf". The first line now is:

Then wicd will be in charge of editing/configuring "/etc/resolv.conf"
like N-M does but I'm not sure what could be the difference here, I mean,
between using N-M or Wicd ... or wait, the difference can also be in the
package version, as I'm on wheezy mine is "4.2.2.dfsg.1-5" while squeeze
has "4.1.1-P1-15+squeeze3"... maybe is that you're hitting a bug? :-?
