Dear All and Paul,
I have just discovered that the FC3 rpm of skype has big problems on my 
FC4. As for Tim, I had a frequent crash of the system, given an high and 
long use of CPU at 100%. Well, last time after a 10 s of talk the 
systems crashed.
Maybe I have problems with the CPU fan (I am working to check it).

But then I have uninstalled the rpm, and used the dynamic binary 
(http://www.skype.com/go/getskype-linux-dynamic). It works very well, 
using only about 1/3 of the CPU.  I have talked 15 minutes and 
everything has been stable all the time.

Hope this helps
