update-modules not working

If I try to do an update-modules, I am told to use
update-modules force
because /etc/modules.conf is not automatically generated

However "update-modules force" merely repeats the error message:

/etc/modutils>update-modules force
Error: the current /etc/modules.conf is not automatically generated.
Use "update-modules force" to force (re)generation.

what am I doing wrong?

Modules.conf is not automatically generated because it gets re-written
when I turn the 4Front Technologies sound system on (it makes sure all
sound modules are turned off).  I then get a whole load of logcheck
messages about "/etc/modules.conf is more recent than
/lib/modules/2.4.19/modules.dep". None of this stops the system working.
but it's irritating.
