Identify and kill slow queries

I've run into problems where a Drupal Views query involving Users executes extremely slow. Here is how to identify and kill it:

Login to mysql
$ mysql -u [dbuser] -h [dbhost] -p

Show processes:
mysql> show processlist;
mysql> show full processlist;
mysql> show processlist\G;

Kill query:
mysql> kill query 1831;
