and indeed David is listed as working on a Y2K project, so I doubt it's a case of 'still talking about' and more a case of 'date your white papers then everyone will know when they are written'. I have to say that the idea of shutting down a database instance in order to kill an orphaned o/s process seemed fundamentally wrong headed to me.

On shutdown abort itself - well I trust Oracle to recover after a power failure, I know crash recovery did have issues in some antediluvian versions, but fundamentally if you don't trust crash recovery of your database it's time to find another database.
