STOP (or sys$delprc) and Privileges?

 ability to execute this command, but one of my users gets an insufficient

  are required to STOP the processes of other members of your UIC group,
  or to stop processes of members of other UIC groups, respectively.

     Terminates execution of a command, an image, a command procedure,
     a command procedure that was interrupted by a Ctrl/Y function, or
     a detached process or subprocess.
     Requires GROUP privilege to stop other processes in the same
     group. Requires WORLD privilege to stop processes outside your
