I cannot reproduce this. And even if I could, file a bug against
modutils. Rmmod should exit immediately if the module is not loaded.

Module? Which module?

Huch? That are different binary packages built from different source
packages but both using same source from the kernel-source packages.
The difference is in the config and a small patch, iirc.

Die schwierigste Turnübung ist, sich selbst auf den Arm zu nehmen.
