'kill PID' is perfectly safe as long as you don't do something silly
like 'kill -9 PID' (which would certainly cause the block to be dropped).

As for how to determine the PID -- recent version of Linux include a
command called 'pidof' which can help with this.  You might want to
use a command like:

	kill `pidof rc5des`
