Ok, this might be connected to the "Extranous Cancel Button" bug,
but anyway. Jason told me to also submit it to this site, so I guess
this is where to put it (deleting the thank-yous):

At this time I see no way of canceling a incorrectly typed or non-
responding connection request other than waiting for a timeout.
Changing the button into "Cancel" and/or supporting CMD-period
would be a good thing. Changing the button (either to "Cancel" or
at least disabling it) after pressing it, would be good anyway.

    This is actually an issue of the connection not being run either threaded
    or asynchronous. So, there isn't currently a way to stop a connect
    (which is why you get the spinning beachball as well).

    Could you ping the address first, and if there is no response then ask "There is no response to a ping, are you sure you wish to processed with this connection?"

    You could also add a Preference for each Server:

    [] Don't ping check

    Default to off
