No. For some strange reasons the "if [ $MODULES ]" works for me as does
"if [ ! -z $MODULES ]" but "if [ -n $MODULES ]" does not.

Probably not. From what I understood the modprobe is executed on his system, so
the return is not. 

Derrick, could you please add an echo and output $MODULES on your system with
some boundaries, so we see whether it's empty or maybe containing some empty
string or whatever? Also could you send us the modules.dep file?
