Trouble killing CUDA processes?

Today I had a problem with a CUDA program I was testing, and could not kill it with either Ctrl-C or "kill -9 ". I had to reboot the machine to continue working. Is this something specific to CUDA, or should I look elsewhere.


It could be cuda-ish. Did you try restarting the X server? ctrl-alt-backspace or /etc/init.d/gdm restart …

Not a nice fix for a pretty annoying problem, but it may help.
