Mandrake 9.1 & Belkin wireless PCMCIA card

i have a Belkin PCMCIA wireless card (F5D6020), it works correctly but when i unplug it the whole computer freezes.
In Mandrake 9.0 (after having changed wvlan driver to orinoco_cs) it worked correctly without freezing my system so i guess that the new orinoco_cs driver is faulty.

In few words...
When i connect it i see:
modprobe hermes [this didn't happen in MDK9.0]
modprobe orinoco [this didn't happen in MDK9.0]
modprobe orinoco_cs
./network start eth1

When i unplug it i see:
./network stop eth1
modprobe -r orinoco_cs

and the whole laptop freezes.

I noticed that if i do /etc/pcmcia/network stop eth1 before unplugging it it correctly unloads all the drivers previously loaded without freezing.

Any hint how to get around this problem?

Thank you,
