Windows 7: Skype Crashes on Resume from Hibernate/Standby

Skype Crashes on Resume from Hibernate/Standby

I have Skype on Win7 Pro (32-bit). It works fine generally and have no problem when it's up and running.

However, I rarely switch off my PC and put it into Hibernate or, occasionally, Standby instead. Whenever I resume from either of these states Skype crashes. I have no idea why. I don't really have any more information that I can give about this problem but it's annoying and I'd like to get it resolved.

Any ideas on what I should look for or try?

Thanks in advance.

Skype knows about the problem, but doesn't seem to have come up with a solution:

Thanks notsograymatter. I didn't even think to look at the Skype Forums. It's a seriously annoying problem but I'm glad I'm not alone.
