blacklisted kernel module still laods at system startup - what did I do wrong ?

Hi there,

I have created a file /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist-usb_storage.conf with the content
blacklist usb_storage
and I have also re-created the initrd.
But after system start, lsmod lists usb_storage as loaded and used by 0

What did I do wrong ?

My distro is Xubuntu 12.04
