I have noticed a few other users complaining of the same issue.
Skype regularly consumes excessive CPU since upgrading to the latest version, to the point where I have to kill and restart. Consuming over 100% cpu.
I have also noticed problems receiving video or shared screens (not sending, just receiving)
Running latest Lion on a Macbook Pro. (2.66 Intel I7, 8GB ram)
Any bugs been reported/worked on for either of these issues?
Same problem for me here.
