I just find something else to do during the posting process.
At the first sign of delay I just quite Safari, which logs me out, and I log back in. It takes about 20 seconds and, on logging in, I find my post has been posted.
It's interesting that the delay seems to occur most often in the original posting. For example, I find that edits are executed reasonably quickly.
