The first thing I can think of is you forgot to restart the service
after making the configuration change, but then you mentioned restarting
the service makes the issue disappear, so that's not it :) .

Perhaps you are seeing machines that only make a single attempt between
log rotations? Or perhaps your machines get so many connects that you've
hit a resource limit in fail2ban? Just guessing, I haven't had any
issues since changing the backend to gamin.
