SQL Server 2000: sp_detach_db hung by running stored procedure

Ran ALTER DATABASE X SET SINGLE_USER WITH IMMEDIATE ROLLBACK/SP_DETACH_DB during maintenance window around the same time that a stored procedure kicked in. Now the sp_detach_db is blocked by the stored procedure and stored procedure is being rolled back (since over 1 hour) by the sp_detach_db statement.

Question: killing the stored procedure doesn't want to release it - what would happen if we killed the ALTER DATABASE SET SINGEL_USER statement?
Is this safe? I checked sysdatabases and still see the database there, though Enterprise Manager says it's inaccessible.

Any advice on this?

you cannot do anything, except wait OR restart the whole sql server instance
