	After just upgrading all my packages in main( I'm running Sid) I noticed that modutils was
upgraded.  Hoping that this might get rid of the message, I rebooted after everything installed.
Unfortunately the message still popped up.  Here's where it gets wierd.  Rebooting this morning
shows no message.  It's gone.  I'm going to look into modutils and see what is causing this
strange behavior.  It doesn't affect the way the system runs, but it is to reminiscent of a
Windows type bug where you have to keep rebooting until it goes away ;)
