A user can always kill his own queries. As long as he can have 2 simultaneous 
connections or more,  killing his own queries should be simple.

http://dev.mysql.com/doc/refman/5.1/en/kill.html
"If you have the PROCESS privilege, you can see all threads. If you have the 
SUPER privilege, you can kill all threads and statements. Otherwise, you can 
see and kill only your own threads and statements."
