Comment 2 for bug 567248

one more information, skype doesn't autostart if empathy ist started.

besides that i wanted to say that i am not really a linux pro. so i am unable to say why it works or why pidgin-skype isn't. i only wanted to share my experience, maybe it is helpful for somebody. same for the solution i posted it is for sure not perfect, but it works for now (at least at my pc).
