Not really no, balsa just uses connect() so it should stay there till 
something happens. connect is returning an error so my guess is it's comming 
from the network. maybe the server is cloged or your isp has a particularly 
stupid set of transparent proxies.

If you're familiar with the tools you can strace balsa or tcpdump the 
connection and figure out what exactly is happening. If you're not familiar 
with the tools but are brave i can give you some pointers.
