    There will be. Once the server portion of this update makes it off of TC1 and out to the production shards it will maintain your choice, so once you leave you will stay out of the chat system until you choose to join another channel. I am able to leave once I login and it works for me, but some people have reported, same as you, that even when they leave they are still in the chat channel. Because our shards have not received the update the new chat system in the client is not communicating properly with the old chat system that is still live on the servers. We were all warned in the patch notes that there will be oddities with the system until the update is complete. Also a few Mythic folks have posted multiple comments on this so for now we have to "leave" each time we login. A pain no doubt, but a temporary one.

    Here is the thread from the 11th that includes official comments from Mythic and a link to the patch notes on the Herald: [UO Herald] Publish 63 Coming to Test Center Today! (http://vboards.stratics.com/showthread.php?t=171332) Posts in this thread of interest include #11 and #17.

    Here is the section of the patch notes that pertain to the new chat system:

    Happy Holidays!

    Some of us are unable to successfully "Leave" any chat channel. I simply set my channel to one of the obscure channels and get no messages.

    This. Last night, the chat channel listed said "None", yet I still saw all of the global chat rolling up my screen. I can't wait for the rest of this update to happen.

    BTeng, one of the UO Engineers, answered this in "Ask the Devs". It's a temporary issue, because of the new chat code interfacing with the chat code originally written for KR.

    Once the new publish goes live for all shards, the situation will resolve, as the number and type of channels will change, and as the code for turning off the chat is also part of the publish, it will be then that you will be able to get the chat exit command to work.
