Well I got very mixed results with this revert. It did seem to help me 
use skype and this is where my bisect ended up. I've not pushed this 
revert into our official packages yet (it was in cooker for a while but 
no-one said it helped so I've now dropped it.

I did a little more testing with skype and managed to make three test 
calls in a row without any problem, so I've asked people on the above 
linked mandriva bug to test the latest version with these 27 patches to 
see if it helps in practical usage of skype (my testing is perhaps a 
little contrived!).

On the positive front, one of the Skype linux devs has tried to contact 
me after I made some comments on their forums about being vaguely 
involved with pulse dev and wanting to help advise them on the best 
implementation. Sadly he tried to contact me via skype so I've only just 
seen it. Perhaps their next version will be all singing and dancing :)
