Well, it did not for me yesterday. And yes this was the first time I
saw the problem, even when I have to kill sylpheed more frequently (we
have ADSL at work and the ISP makes a non-sense forced disconnect every
24h, the IP changes and sylpheed hangs some time before the connection
timeouts and it creates a new one - I kill it if I need it immediately).

Dunno if I could reproduce the problem easily :(
