OK, I thought there was a crash because you wrote this in your first mail:

| opened in SKype with not so much attention.

Anyway, the problem is the closed source nature of Skype. No open source 
developer (e.g. from the ALSA project) will waste his time to find out 
what the problem is, if he can't really trace the problem. But that is 
not possible with Skype. Therefore you can only try to get help from 
Skype. If they don't care, there is no help available.
