    Default Skype takes over

    Two computers on the same Internet connection.

    Computer 1 AMD Athlon II X4 630, 2 Gigabytes memory openSUSE 12.3 32 bit KDE. When Skype connects CPU usage for Skype and pulseaudio rises to a combined 80% approximately.

    Computer 2 AMD Athlon 1640B, 2 Gigabytes memory openSUSE 12.3 64 bit KDE. When Skype connects CPU usage for Skype and pulseaudio rises to a combined 45% approximately.

    Changing Skype versions does not seem to change the above results. Isn't this excessive for a single application? Does anyone else have this problem? Thanks for any suggestions.
