Yes.  You can set any delay you wish before reconnecting to the internet 
using file/schedule_editor.  The format is "+nnn" where the delay is set 
in minutes.  I would guess most users have it set at 1 minute (if they 
read the user docs). 

But I wonder if the buffer you refer to ever gets flushed...if the tnc 
does hardware flow control and is full, perhaps the data just stays 
there until it is read?  Lengthening the delay may do no good.
