>Description:
Looks like outgoing skype calls are broken by some kernel change between Feb 25, 2009 and Arp 25, 2009.

Symptom is that time counter of the call counts seconds with much lower than 1Hz frequency and all outgoing calls disconnect after 1 minute.

On Feb 25 it was 7.1-STABLE. On Apr 25 it's 7.2-PRERELEASE.

This is a very serious usability issue and should be fixed before 7.2 is made STABLE.

It may cause other adverse effects in other Linux apps.
