Right; I don't think that fail2ban starts or stops the firewall either.

But as far as I know, fail2ban does re-parse logs when it is started, and adds any qualifying entries to the iptables rules (if not already present).

If this is, in fact, how fail2ban behaves, wouldn't it re-add the IP address in question as soon as fail2ban is restarted?
