I remember killing connection via delete from mon$statements with firebird 2.0 or 2.1. Could the fact that it doesn't work for me now be down to upgrading the client install to 2.5?

Killing connections by deleting from MON$STATEMENTS requires Firebird
2.5 and an ODS 11.2 database (so you will also need to backup and
restore the database when migrating to Firebird 2.5!).
