When your module is removed, you need to clean up any remaining memory
that the ida used. It's not obvious at all, and is a pain as you would
think that if you statically allocate one, like you have here, it would
not be needed. You need to just call:
ida_destroy(&ccidg_ida);
in your module exit function.

Hope this helps,
