It does restore the connection if it can - I see the same thing when I update 
a kernel on my server, needing a reboot.

I can't say it's a frequent occurrence, but KMail does occasionally get stuck, 
and closing it down is necessary.  On those occasions it often doesn't shut 
down cleanly.  I use System Activity monitor, and often can see a large pile 
of processes left over.  I kill them, then restart KMail, and that always 
works.  Of course it 's only a work-around.
