This most likely happens because the user process (vmware-user) is having file
descriptors open in /proc/fs/vmblock/*. This causes troubles unloading /
reloading the vmblock module (thanks Dmitry @ vmware for pointing this one
out).

A test package with this in the vmtoolsd script is being built in
home:dimstar:branches:Virtualization:VMware/open-vm-tools.

An update *to* this version will still hang (as the vmtoolsd init script does
not have the updated parameters yet on disk). Any subsequent updates should
then work.
