I can confirm the same behaviour on Natty. Basically makes the Skype plugin useless

In my case DO is not picking up skype contacts on Ubuntu 10.10 (not Natty).
I can see icons for skype chat, skype call, recent chats etc. but none of them work because there are no contacts to choose from.
If I should be posting this as a separate report, do let me know.

Hm. I wonder if Skype has changed it's DBus interface. I'll check with shiny new Skype and see.
