This is ridiculous.
I can't believe the tone of 'Neil' - clearly everyone is frustrated with this ridiculous feature and it needs addressing.
When I come to shut down my mac, my efforts are always hampered by this absurd dialog box.
HOW CAN WE TURN IT OF??

This is something I have been trying to get rid of for a year now. I just figured it out. I am running Skype 188.8.131.52 on a Mac. I was not keeping any chat history as I am sure most of us are not. When I changed that setting in preferences to save chat history for 1 month the dialog box went away when I quit.
Now I don't want to save my chat history nor do I want the dialog box. But given a choice between the two I would rather save my history rather than having an update fail due to the dialog box.
Hope this helps. One of Neil's posts gave me a hint. Thanks Neil.
I've had to edit your posts as they contravene Skype's guidelines.
I would be grateful if you would bear this section in mind.

I'm surprised to see a moderator edit a user's contravening statement as soon as he posts, but not work on to solve the root cause of this issue. I believe it is because of which this topic is getting lenthened and delayed.
It simply means that Skype developers know that the problem exists, but don't want to solve it.
