Updating Linux host software causes host OS crash => Fixed in SVN

I am currently automatically picking up updates from you Debian repositories.
When the latest update arrived, it attempted to recompile its kernel module and then replace the module whilst my m/chine was up and there were active VMs. This caused a crash of the host system. (Total freeze, reset button required.) Fortunately no important data was lost, though minor use of backups was required.
This is essentially a show stopper as an automated process can, without warning, knock over the host machine.
