Maybe they're not the same problem at all then because I don't get this
"There is a sound problem" error message nor can I hang-up, the button
doesn't do anything. In fact, other things, like text chat, stop working and
I have to 'kill -9' Skype off completely.
Does Skype write to any log files that might give a clue as to what my problem
Surely it must be some corrupt file in /home/colin but wherever it is it's not
in the .Skype directory 'cos I had already mv'd that.
