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?
