workaround howto suspend pulseaudio when running skype. I will try it.
Update. Workaround from comment2 not working for me with Skype 2.0 Maybt

Request for PulseAudio support in Skype:
I worked very hard on skype. Only effect is that i have sound in booth speakers

This is a bug in Skype, not pulseaudio.
There are some workarounds mentioned on the PulseAudio wiki:
But unfortunately Skype is closed-source software that we can't fix.
