Pissed Kick Starter problems

the thread describes the starter clutch slipping but has anybody had the problem where the kick start is turning the whole starter motor making it impossible to start the bike. This has happened to me twice when I've run the battery flat on a snarly hill or water crossing, I've gone to kick start but there is a whirling sound and the motor turns very slowly. I can only think that the starter clutch won't disengage and the starter motor is turing. If I roll start the bike or charge the battery and start it, then this frees up the kick start? any ideas?
