hostap bug when unloading driver?

Hi all,

I am using hostap-driver 0.3.7 and Linux kernel 2.4.20 . When I remove 
the card from the pcmcia slot something weird happens and after a few 
times if I do "lsmod" it shows: hostap_cs  -4.
It seems that the driver does not get unloaded correctly. Also, if I try 
doing "modprobe -r hostap_cs" I get "device busy".
Does anyone know how to fix this? It did not happen to me when I was 
using a very old version of the driver (0.0.4).

Thanks a lot,
