No and this is the problem, I don't know a way to reset the semaphore.
If you reset the modem (modprobe -r (your_usb_controller), modem_run don't
know the firmware is not there and refuse to load it again.
Maybe you don't see anything because modem_run is started by hotplug before
you try by hand.
If I remember well, modem_run display an explicit message stating that the
firmware is already loaded.

You may try with modem_run v1.2 but I don't know how the whole package will
install after v1.3.1 was installed.
v1.2 scripts does not support hot-plug.
