Yep that's what I've seen too. Suffice to say, it's a Skype problem.
Suggest you hit the feedback/forums and search for your specific
camera, and post a report about it so they can fix it up for you. If
it was 64-bit ubuntu and you're seeing io32ctl errors, thats usually
to do with the kernel module used to drive the camera..

Thats why closed source is a pain! We'll have to wait for them to fix it up.

(I have one camera that works and one that does the same thing -- Grrr...)

Best of luck,
