10.3: Kill another user logged in under Fast User Switching
Authored by: hamarkus on Dec 02, '03 10:00:59AM

I can only confirm this, I have managed to create kernel panics and stuck sub-processes (requiring a restart) with kill -9.

One thing one should always try before reverting to kill -9, is to apply the kill command several times. Killing e.g. pppd usually takes 4 to 5 kill attempts before it terminates.
