I have multiple IMAP and NNTP servers configured in Gnus, mostly over SSL using the integrated GnuTLS. When I put my laptop into suspend-to-RAM for a while, the TCP connections will obviously drop eventually, but Gnus doesn't recognize this, so pressing 'g' after the system wake-up will cause Gnus to hang while waiting for the TCP connections to respond. I usually resolve that by restarting Gnus with C-g and R.

Is there a way for Gnus to quickly detect dropped TCP connections and transparently reconnect when I try to update the group list?
