well, this is an easy fix:

just use this URL.
http://www.google.com/ig?gl=all&t=0

but that doesnt explain how and why a chat module shows up..when i dont use google talk. and now google talk is listed under my account settings- and i don't want it. PERIOD.

Is there any way to remove the chat module or is it now hard-wired onto the page?

Your URL, with "&t=0" parameter just removed Google Talk Chat gadget from my iGoogle left bar: thank you!

They should compare the load time between the old style version

google.com/ig?gl=all&t=0

and the new one with the left tabs and that friggin' chat module. It's not even close.

Google has compromised the load time of the new iGoogle.
