This says it's been solved, and when you "got to solution" you end up right back here. (?)

Have you tried the latest version 5.3.0 1074 which was put out on August 8th?

Have the same problem, MacPro, OS 10.6.8, Skype 5.3.5911 on 9/11/11. Tried all the suggestions and nothing works. Skype starts, attempts to login and just crashes. Tried a new login account to see if there is any conflict. Even in the TEST account, Skype did the same thing. Worked fine before I installed the last two updates. Well, we're back to Microsoft and being second rate users!

Update: I just installed today, 9/15/11 as per instructions. Still no change, crashes when it attempts to log in.
