What does not
What was not tested
Skype throws an unhandled exception the first time you log in with your account. It is probably the "What's new" window that crashes. Consecutive runs work flawlessly. Note: you need to have wine set to Win98 for Skype to even install properly. Tested with gecko, ie6 from winetricks.
