You could look at using an imap proxy to emulate persistent connections.  I believe Timo (dovecot's author) once showed that dovecot is faster than using a proxy, so don't even bother with a proxy when using dovecot.

For our installation, using up-imapproxy with Dovecot did improve
performance.  So, YMMV, and I recommend actually testing to see how
things work either way.

(We do a number of things that may make initial login more latent 
than it may be for other people using Dovecot and that probably
accounts for the difference.)
