If you just eject the card without setting the wlan0 interface down,
some resources are not freed immediately. You will need to set the
interface down either before ejecting the card or after (I haven't
tested this for a while, but it should work). In other words, the
Linux network interface does not necessarily disappear immediately when
you eject the card. This was needed to fix couple of potential crashes.
