I am really surprised and shocked how it has happened. When I did last one Skype upgrade in June 2012 It has become to work very strange. Sometimes when I open chat window with some contact, It lists all latest messages from that person although I have already read them.
Few days ago one friend from my contact list has received few messages I had already received before from other my skype contact. It seemed these messages were sent by me. It is really confusing.
I have no history option in privacy section and cleared all my cookies. How can I protect my privacy?
If I make skype upgrade, can these problems arrise due to upgrade? (that somehow messages are mixed and sent to other contacts)?
Thank You in advance for Your help!

Please find details about the cause of this problems and how we are working on resolving it with a hotfix very soon on this page: http://heartbeat.skype.com/2012/07/imchat_issue.html
The same thing happened to me this morning. Messages sent by one contact (2 lines out of a hundred or so) were sent to another contact of mine. These 2 contacts are not connected on Skype. The 2 IMs appeared to be sent by me, so the other contact asked me if I sent them by mistake. That is the only reason I know it happened. Question is why and how often does it happen?
Any feedback is greatly appreciated. I am really not inclined to use Skype until this is addressed.
The exact same thing has happened to me, except that I was the recipient of two lines of chat which were exchanged between my contact and one of his contacts. I am not connected to my friend's contact.
Strangely enough, the two messages were actually sent today on July 11, 2012 (Beijing time), but when I logged in to Skype this morning, the two messages appeared in the chat history with my contact, and it recorded it as being sent on July 10.
If it is of any use, I just updated to the latest version of Skype 188.8.131.52 (I received the two messages after logging in with the updated version), while my contact was also using the latest Italian version of Skype.
This is very disturbing and a serious breach of privacy, please address the issue immediately.
I have the same problem, messages from one of my contacts went to another, as being sent by me. Very awkward and slightly embarassing. I hope this issue gets fixed asap, thanks
Is it a problem only with 115?
What Skype is saying to the press:
"We are aware in rare circumstances IM’s between two contacts could be sent to an unintended third contact. We are rolling out a fix for this issue in the next few days and will notify our users to download an updated version of Skype."
