[erlang-questions] erl_ddll and dlclose

Hello,

I've just noticed that calling unload doesn't actually close the  
shared library (this is R12-B3, MacOS X, 10.4, PowerPC). Yet, in some  
situation, it might be desirable to make sure the shared library  
initializer will be called again.

I can observe this behavior with both load/unload and load_driver/ 
unload_driver. Is there a way to make sure dlclose is called?

Paul
