After a lot of tests and debugging it turned out that only the local
test view and the local own view in calls were not working; the problem
reduced that way to a local X11 issue; I deleted in xorg.conf the
entries about

	# Virtual   2944 2944

in all Display sections and after it the local picture in Skype was
working too; don't know what the relationship between this in the
overlay in Skype is.
