Completely removed Skype. Downloaded and extracted the static 32-bit
version. Skype is working (at least for the echo 123 test).
Looking on the forums at skype, the 'undefined symbol' error has been
reported in various incarnations and been dismissed as either a 'mismatched
QT problem', or a 'contact your kernel developers and tell them they should
turn off accessibility' problem. Interesting that the deb package exists on
Skype as an shared install and causes these errors, while the static 32 bit
version doesn't exhibit the behavior. I'm actually wondering why distro's
push Ekiga - does anyone use it? If it works similar to Skype and actually
works well in Linux, I'd be all for using it (or at least giving it a try to
see how well it works).
