Startup snail-paced on Mac

After the latest upgrade to Version 5.7.0 1037, Skype startup is taking over 5 minutes to complete. During this time it blocks all other activity. I've had to remove automatic startup at login but that's to stop frustration and is not a proper solution.


I'm on Mac OS X Version 10.5.8.  My daughter, also using a MacBook with the same OS X and Skype Versions, does not have this problem.  What is causing my problem and how can it be fixed?


Version 5.7.0 1037

Like:      The ability to get replies to my SMS messages on my mobile. Nice one.

Dislike:  The fact that my previous SMS history was wiped on upgrading to this version.

             No warning given to save history before upgrading
