Bug Description

After a fresh install of skype and audio-recorder, audio-recorder detects skype call and starts recording, however after a couple of seconds, it crashes.

When re-running audio-recorder after this crash, in Additional Settings->Device Settings, Skype is no longer present in the list of Installed Items. Skype calls no longer get detected.

After deleting /home/sevakm/.config/dconf/user Skype reappears in the list of Installed Items and the same thing happens: first few seconds of a Skype call get recorded, audio-recorder crashes, Skype disappears from the list of Installed items.

Manually recording input or output streams still works.

I am attaching the crash report.

Additional comment.
I can see that the crash appears along the dbus_g* calls.
The dbus-skype.c module is the only one that uses the older dbus-glib API. All the other dbus-* modules are already on GDBus.

Guide: Migration from older dbus-glib to GDBus API.

I have now ported the dbus-skype.c module from dbus-glib to the newer GDBus API.
This also simplifies the code and /src/skype-service.c and src/skype-service-object-glue.h can be removed from the project.

The Skype interface works now very well.
I will push the updated code to the Launchpad within the next couple of days. New packages for Raring will also follow.
