An abnormal socket disconnection can take a long time for the OS to detect -
up to several hours.  Until the OS does detect it, it will not report any
errors for operations performed on the connection.

In the OnConnect event, try setting the connection's ReadTimeout property to
a reasonable timeout value.  Indy uses infinite timeouts by default.
