module not loading except via modconf

I've got Wacom Intous2 graphics tablet that I use on my Sid box
(kernel 2.6.11).

It works fine using the wacom module that comes with the 2.6 kernel.

But here's my problem:

On a reboot, the wacom driver is loaded.  I'm sure of this because

'dmesg|grep wacom' gives me

309:usbcore: registered new driver wacom
310:drivers/usb/input/wacom.c: v1.30:USB Wacom Graphire and Wacom
Intuos tablet driver


'lsmod' gives me

wacom    13024  0

So it's there, but it doesn't work.  The cursor winds up stuck on
the edge of the screen.

However, if as root, I run 'modconf' and remove the wacom module and
then immediately re-install the module, then it all works just fine
until the next time I need to boot, which thankfully isn't very

Note that 'wacom' is one of the entries in /etc/modules.

Any thoughts?
