Well, actually not.
During tests on different channels I can't confirm srate and lock time dependency.
For example:
1550 (OASI TV @12.5W) - 1sec
2200 (TBN Russia @12.5W) - 2sec
2960 (Avrasya-ANK @42E) - 1sec
3092 (Minsk TV @53E) - 7sec !!!
4883 (NTV Hayat @12.5W) - 3sec
8888 (Cine5* @42E) - 2sec

So, now I set DVB-S timeouts same as for DVB-T and DVB-C and quite happy.
