Are you using the TIdTCPClient in the main thread?  If so, is there a
TIdAntiFreeze component present as well?  TIdAntiFreeze can slow down
Connect() if there are pending messages in the main thread's message queue.
It also depends on how long the OS takes to close the socket when the
timeout is reached.  Blocking sockets do not support timed connects, so Indy
has to spawn a worker thread and then wait for that thread to terminate when
the socket API connect() function has exited.
