So, as discussed in IRC for now there's this patch:

I'm not sure if for v1.1 I should add that with the timeout configurable
in dovecot-ldap.conf (and same for SQL), or do something else such as
sending some dummy request to the LDAP server. Or alternative to a
"check once a second timeout" would be to check it only when the next
request arrives, and then do the reconnection. That'll of course slow
down that authentication a bit.
