    there is a simple solution to this.
It involves cutting off the left thumb and fourth finger of offending

Seriously though, putting some sort of cleanipcs script in the stop_proc
is a good idea.
I looked at this briefly myself.
As I recall, the problem I found was that you can deal with the shared
memory segments. Either you can parse the output of ipcs -m
or grep /proc/sysvipc/shm 
and delete the relevant segments.

The problem I found was the semaphore queues, which you can't associate
with a particular process ID.
