Modprobe -r Strangeness

I just popped in the latest CVS version of Speakup and the Speakout
stuff is workin' good now.:)  But I discovered a strange deal when I
do a
"modprobe -r speakup_spkout".  I can't really say if this started
today or if it is the similar problem Gene talked about last week or
so.  When I do 
"modprobe -r speakup_spkout" from an ssh session, it unloads both
speakup_spkout and speakupmain as I would expect.  I can then load
speakup with
"modprobe speakup_spkout" with no problems either.

However... if I do the unload command from a normal console, the
machine locks up and any remote sessions are also hung up.  I cannot
ctrl-alt-del or any of that.  I have to power off the machine to get
things back.  So the strangeness here is modprobe -r... works
perfectly from a remote session but locks up tighter than a drum if it
is done from a normal tty from a local root login.
