That's fine. It's a very isolated thing (me enabling IPX.) I'm guessing
it's a simple oversight in handling the deletion of an interface. I'll
have to look at the way IP traffic is handled to see if it's just IPX not
MOD_INC_USE_COUNT'ing the driver or something like that.

The obvious fix is to shutdown IPX before removing the card :-) Another
route would be to have the name remain in existance until the interface
is no longer busy. Otherwise, the services busying the device cannot be
easily shutdown.
