Sorry for asking the obvious - what is the output from:
  - /sbin/service denyhosts status
  - /sbin/chkconfig --list denyhosts

You could also try to reset the configuration by copying  
/usr/share/doc/denyhosts-2.6/denyhosts.cfg-dist to  
/etc/denyhosts/denyhosts.cfg (don't forget to backup your configuration).
