We have the same exact issue as referred in the following thread.
We stopped crawling under Shared Services Administration: SharedServices2 > Search Settings > Content Sources and selected one of the existing content sources . But still it is showing "stopping " status. All the options are also disabled except "Edit" and "View Crawl Log". We are interested only in stopping the crawling of a particular "Content source" which we tried to stop. I am gussing "Stsadm-o spsearch-action fullcrawlstop " would stop crawling of all content sources.
Note: "Windows SharePoint Services Help Search" is running. We also rebooted the server.

The Stsadm command doesn't provide the operation to stop the crawling of a particular "Content Source", refer to below article,
It cannot be stoped from SSP -> Manage Content Sources page in your case, you need to run this command Stsadm -o spsearch -action fullcrawlstop, and reboot the server then check result again.
