A "kill 9" should be the last resource. And it is possible that these
preoceses depends on other processes started in order. I believe it is
better to restart the appropriate service.

In this case, stop and start graphics ;-)

It would be if the subject pid's were killed by leaving the graphics
target, but they are not always and were not in this case.

systemctl isolate multi-user.target
*is* leaving/stopping graphics

*and* systemctl isolate graphics.target
is restarting it. To stop graphics is is necessary to go to another
target (runlevel).

"-9" may be harsh, but sometimes is necessary the the op is not aware of
or knowledgeable to determine, so where from here? Reboot is the only
other option.

kdeinit4 and kuiserver(5) frequently are not stopped by leaving/stopping
the graphics target.
