Ahh, look over once more, the magic happens here:

"sort -k 1,1 "$DB" /tmp/.inmem | uniq > /tmp/.potential_new_db"

Missed it the first time and focused a bit too much on "cp /tmp/.potential_new_db "$DB"" :)

@bugsmanagement - It does not overwrite. Try the experiment: load your module, update, rmmod, update. It's still there.

Forgive me for my lack of understanding, but looking over your script, it appears to me that it overwrites than updates the database? What I worry about, ie, I connect to my VPN provider, which accordingly loads the tun module, modprobed-db updates the database. Coincidentally after reboot, tun module is not loaded, modprobed-db then polls, see no tun module, and overwrites the database omitting the tun module?

Ha, no entry for flavor so but it does show you example usage.

--> The system service and timer have been deprecated in favor of user flavors.
--> See the manpage of modprobed for details.
Manual of modprobed-db (8) doesn't have any entry for 'flavors'.
