This question was originally filed as bug #789070.

Skype has its own bug reporting system.

https://jira.skype.com/secure/Dashboard.jspa

I will change this report to a question though. Someone may be able to answer it here.

Maybe you have fallen victim to http://heartbeat.skype.com/2011/05/problems_signing_into_skype_an.html ?

Here are two more things you might to do gather more data troubleshoot a crash in the Skype program

1) run "cd /tmp ; strace -o skype_strace skype ; tail -n 33 skype_strace"
2) run "mkdir ~/.Skype/Logs" as detailed in http://developer.skype.com/SkypeGarage/LogFile

Thanks Rolf Leggewie, that solved my question.
