Since a few days ago logging in on my Skype account crashes the client (latest version.)
It logs in, the login sound plays, but just as the "Skype Home" pane loads with the blue rotating graphic, it crashes. Logging in to other accounts works fine.
Mac OS X Version 10.8.4 on a late 2009 iMac. I have tried other, older versions of Skype and reinstalled the latest version several times as well as erased all relevant plist files to no avail. Very irritating since I would lose all my contacts and chat history if I were to switch accounts.
