the file backing a previously-loaded module has to be rm’d, in order to ensure that the
in-memory copy is released?

Responding to myself, after a quick consult with the Googlemonster:
Seems you need to call a utility called slibclean, to remove the memory references to the
shared object.

And, sometimes, that still doesn’t work - so you have to rm it anyway. :/

Anyhoo - it seems to me that the real problem is that we’re deleting the newly generated
.so, rather than the *target* into which we’re trying to copy (which is what would be what
has the in-memory references).
