Very often, it is not possible to log in. Upon signing in, the skype protocol immediately self-disconnects (you can see the number of online contact go to for example 30 instantly, and then rapidly decrease to 0 (within about 1-2 seconds). The protocol itself sometimes actually remains shown as online, but it isn't (any action will result in "you must create an endpoint first").

I suspect this is due to some kind of rate limiting, perhaps. Previously, it took some time for skype protocol to poll the names, statuses and everything - and it was about 30-40 seconds before the skypeweb protocol was truly "up to date". Now it seems that it's instant upon login, but at the cost of (probably?) being kicked or disconnected by skypeweb api for too many events at once.

Considering the general instability of the protocol and thus the requirement to sign in often, this makes the whole protocol somewhat pain to use.

The behavior became slightly worse after 485351f and 30aa1e7 though I have no idea why or how that is possible. It is more likely something was also changed in skype web api itself around that time. Regardless, an improvement of the said behavior would be much appreciated.

This happens in 8/10 cases of me trying to log in, so it's not difficult to reproduce. I have 43 skype contacts out of which 30+ are usually online/signed in.

There does not seem to be a change with 160ecb9 , the issue still occurs. (Not that this commit was meant to fix the problem - but just because it impacts login)
