The proposal is simply that Gnus should detect a stale connection to
an NNTP server -- if the server doesn't respond in a timely manner, it
should drop the connection and open a new one.  

As it is now, when I ask Gnus to look for new news, it sometimes
"hang" for a long time waiting for the news server to respond -- since
I'm impatient, I interrupt this with C-g (it works!) which seems to
cause Gnus to close the connection. Then I simply repeat the "get new
news" command manually.  I think Gnus could do this automatically for me!
