"- The chat 'Reconnect' button will now forcibly disconnect any other client from chat, and log back in with your nickname on the current client."

It does not.

This is not working in main, either.

Since this update, more than once I've logged in and had a gray chat button. Clicking the rectangular "Reconnect" doesn't do anything at all. Clicking the gray gumdrop button says "Reconnecting", but never connects.

The only way I can connect to chat via the in-game client is to Save & Exit and see if it connects when I log back in.

I am unable to reconnect to chat either. I have quit and restarted. Using main with Macintosh. Save & Exit did not help. Help.

Not really a crash/hang but indeed, it does not reconnect (at least after a WiFi disconnection): see also

This button is now completely broken.
