[contacts] skype adds multiple copies of the same contacts to contacts list

I've discovered that skype (updated last version) app, at every chat I do with a certain contact, it adds the contact to contacts list

And at every chat it re adds the contact. Please note that I run skype suddenly.

Looks like that at every new run, if chatting with someone, it adds it to contacts, regardless the fact that the same contact with the same skype icon is already present in the contacts.

Really sad about OS 10 and its holes.

Hopefully BlackBerry developers will fix some of them in the forthcoming releases...

Re: [contacts] skype adds multiple copies of the same contacts to contacts list

This is a known problem and has been reported several times in these forums.

Me personally I have removed skype from my phone until it is fixed.
