My experience shows that it's not a big deal -- only exitting from
skype has an effect. Well, having the port at the ports tree, you may
test it yourself. ;-)

Unfortunately I somehow messed up my i386-current, xorg and NVIDIA and

even when I set 2.6.15, ktrace shows that openat calls were present...
