Are you using more than one IMAP account?  I experience the same
problem, and it seems to be only when the second account is checked.
For some reason, Sylpheed realises quickly that the connection for the
first account has been broken but waits for a timeout on the second.  I
tried a bit of digging, and it seems to be somewhere quite deep within
the network code in Sylpheed.  Too deep for me to fix myself, but maybe
Hiroyuki-san can see an obvious place to look with this information.

My usual workaround is to re-start Sylpheed after a disconnection.
