Traditionally, this was solved by making wmiirc (1) emit "Start
wmiirc" to /event at startup and later (2) exit if they see "Start
wmiirc" inside their /event processing loop. In this manner, new
instances of wmiirc terminate previously existing ones.

I don't know why that mechanism was removed from the default SH
wmiirc. It did exist in the past, however.
