Hi all,

since this is my first post to this list, I first of all want to thank
the PC BSD team for the great work and I am also deeply impressed by the
speed with which questions on this list are answered and also solved.

I can confirm this problem with RC2 and also after upgrading to RC3.

But from reading on this list I understand there are people who are able
to run Skype?
