skype12 login problem and debug logging

I use skype on 3 computers.

1. FreeBSD 6.4-STABLE, port skype12-
2. FreeBSD 7.2-STABLE, port skype 2.x
3. Windows XP, skype 3.8

Suddenly, starting a couple of weeks ago, I'm no longer able to log in  
to Skype on computer 1 (Skype just says "Invalid password"). I can  
still log in with same username and password on computers 2 and 3. I  
tried changing my skype password on the website, after that I could  
log in with new password on computers 2 and 3 but not on computer 1.

I tried moving my ~/.Skype directory out of the way and reinstalling  
net/skype12, which didn't help. I'd like to turn to Skype support for  
help, so I tried to turn on logging as described here:

... but the log file is not created, so it's hard to expect any help  
from the folks at Skype.

Does anyone know how to turn on logging in this version of Skype on FreeBSD?
