I am having this same issue with 3.7.8 and 3.9.0 connecting IMAP4 to
imap-ssl.mail.yahoo.com port 993.  Whenever I leave the connection up for over
60 seconds if I then select a different email or IMAP account there is a delay
of 59 seconds.  Through trial and error I found this was particular to when
Claws issue the NOOP to IMAP4 server.  If no NOOP is sent then message
selection display or different account message display have no delay.  

As a work-around I've change the
configuration>Preferneces>Miscellaneous>Other>Socket I/O timer to 3 seconds
from the default of 59, and Claws will restart the IMAP connection within 3
seconds.   With the Network Log open the Yahoo servers is sending an error
"connection is broken" after a Claws NOOP message to the server and has it
restarts the connection.  This could be that Yahoo is not complying to the NOOP
or the Yahoo servers are dropping connections after being idle for 'x' seconds.
 Not sure but wanted to post this work-around for others.
