minimum poptimeout value to high in case of client connection loss

on a setup with lots of roaming users, the following happens frequently:

- users are logging in using pop3
- users connection breaks down or
  users client breaks down (so the tcp session is not terminated)
- user tries to login again
- mailbox of user is locked for poptimeout minutes

10 minutes is a very long time to wait to be able to access mail again.
Is there a specific reason, why this minimum is that high?

With best regards,

Carsten Hoeger
