I have the latest version of Skype 64b installed in Natty x64 with gnome2. I downloaded the deb file from the official page (skype-ubuntu_2.2.0.35-1_amd64).

I had been working ok since i first installed it a couple of months ago but since last week whenever i click on the icon to open it the whole desktop freezes, actually it starts lagging, like the mouse takes a while to answer every 2 secs, sometimes it stays like that until Skype automatically force closes or the desktop freezes completely.

I looked around in google but the best answer i got was to re-install. It actually worked, but only once, second time i tried to open it same behavior reappeared. Any help someone can give will be most appreciated.
