I had one such occasion on under HP/UX 11.11 just last week on
a dev DB that gets rebuilt from scratch weekly.  The sniped process
prevented the release of shared memory even after a SHUTDOWN ABORT
(confirmed by ipcs -a), which prevented the new instance from starting
up.  I haven't needed to take time to troubleshoot it, since it's just a
dev DB.
I'm really not a Winders-type, but I don't think even if it could (RPC?)
that I would attempt to run something like this remotely.

I have never had such bad luck... but with orakill, I did come across
the tidbit, (yet to be seconded), that it has to be run from the server
itself to work.
