OK, Paul.  If you want a way to test this in windows, there's a very easy way.

Download a 30 day trial of mIRC, start it, go into it's preferences, enable the ident
server, disable the "Only while connecting" option, then try to check mail - see if the
pause is gone.  If it is, then you know that's the problem :)
