I checked wheezy only because I thought that's what you use, I didn't
read carefully enough, sorry. Regardless, it makes no difference, the
man pages say that lines
  search hosts dns
or
  dns-search hosts dns
do NOT work the way you seem to think, regardless of which file
they're in. The dns-search version that goes in /etc/network/interfaces
is documented in resolvconf(8). It does NOT accept arguments like
"hosts" or "dns", according to the man pages. I have not read the
source though.
