It's been a problem literally for YEARS

This delay issue has been an ongoing problem literally for years.

Perhaps as long as 15 years.

I read a while back this delay was intentional, to provide some automatic cutover smoothing or something, so that the server could handle connect/disconnect issues, such as when your own server drops connection, and then reconnects.

I imagine this was done so that a series of rapid reconnects and disconnects from a crappy source (in your home or office) to the internet, wouldn't hammer a relay server - essentially forcing the reconnect process to take longer to ensure the reconnect is in fact stable.

I wish there was a way to set it for a shorter amount of time because it makes testing, as well as reconnection after an outage a major pain in the ass.
