Made a minor change to my patch, in the hope that it will be used if
qtwebkit isn't fixed in time for the 13.04 release.

Also, thought I'd mention that there is an easier way to apply 'the
LD_PRELOAD workaround' manually:

* In your personal ~/bin, create a file named skype with the following
contents:

#!/bin/sh
LD_PRELOAD=/usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/mesa/libGL.so.1 /usr/bin/skype &

* chmod +x ~/bin/skype

That's it. No need to change the .desktop file or edit in /usr at all.
It works since ~/.profile contains this code:

  if [ -d "$HOME/bin" ] ; then
      PATH="$HOME/bin:$PATH"
  fi
