Skype login window disappearance fix

For 2 days, some people are reporting login window disappearances. Happened to me on both my Windows XP and Ubuntu 10.10 machine. The solution is quite the same:

  1. Locate the Skype user settings folder
  2. Delete it

On Linux:

  1. Open terminal
  2. rm -rf /home/username/.Skype

On Windows:

  1. Start -> Run
  2. %appdata%\Skype
  3. Select All (CTRL + A)
  4. Delete

Update (31.05.2011.):

As some people pointed, there is a better solution than deleting the whole Skype user settings folder. Instead, you should only delete the shared.xml file in it.
