Skype causes almost-full lockup after 30 minutes of operation
This bug is from AskUbuntu. I am filing it for somebody else. The question is at http://
On either of my two computers, the whole desktop gets extremely slow after Skype runs for about 20-30 min. That is, I can no longer use it, the mouse will only move every other second for some pixels, or not at all; keyboard input does not seem to work (at least alt+f4, etc.)
My laptop runs on an Intel Core 5, my desktop an AMD Phenom 9650. The former has an Intel HD 3000 graphics processor (rc6 and stuff enabled, which never caused crashes without Skype enabled), the latter a Nvidia GeForce 8400 GS with proprietary drivers.
I have only added Google Chrome and Dropbox to my system.
Neither in syslog nor in the xorg log are any entries near the time of the freeze. Starting Skype in the Terminal wont give any results, it seems to crash before reporting.
