I can confirm part of Dave's problem with the pidgin-skype plugin in 
Natty.  I have no problems with audio calls, but when I try and text 
chat with someone on skype, I can see the messages I send out, but no 
incoming messages are displayed.  Is there a work around for seeing the 
messages people send you?  Any help would definitely be appreciated.
