Yes, it is problematic. But the only way to unload the drivers is to 
make sure they're not used any more, and that requires VDR to be 
stopped. Driver crashes are rare these days, but reloading drivers may 
have an effect after all.
(for me, I sometimes have problems with multiswitch signaling, and 
powering off and on the LNB power can help in this case)
