This happens when you open IMAP client, or when it's running? Or did it 
completely stop working?

Or maybe this is a firewalling problem? Clients sometimes first try 
port 993 then 143, or vice versa, and if either one of them is blocked 
at firewall it hangs there for a long time.

This is different. Here Dovecot disconnects you because you didn't log 
in within 30 seconds.
