Clarifying Information
Error MessageSYSTEM ERROR: Releasing regular latch. latchId: 1 (5028)
User <nr> died holding 1 shared memory locks. (2522)
Begin ABNORMAL shutdown code 2 (2249)
Defect/Enhancement Number
If a shared memory client is killed (using the TaskManager for example) this is equivalent to a kill -9 on UNIX (sends the signal SIGKILL), and this causes the errors seen above and shuts down the database.
Client processes and servers should always be disconnected via promon.
Sysinternal utilities ( e.g. process explorer) can show which file handles are being used by a process.
This information could be used to determine if the process is touching database files or not.
