convert ASM to single-instance

anyone know how to convert ASM back to single-instance?  i've relinked with
rac_off, removed the clusterware with rootdelete.sh, triple-checked
init+ASM.ora (no mention of cluster_database), and rebooted for good
measure - but every time I try to start ASM, I still get this error:

SQL> startup
ORA-29701: unable to connect to Cluster Manager

couldn't find anything on metalink, in the docs, or on the net...  but maybe
i've missed something?
