Tips needed for debugging Skype on Wine (Access violation)

I'm trying to get Skype running on Wine (latest Git). The app however 
throws an 'Access violation at address 00593AD1 in module "Skype.exe". Read of 
address FFFFFFFF'.

I've set set the version to XP. I do find that when I apply this "patch":

diff --git a/dlls/kernel32/process.c b/dlls/kernel32/process.c
index a08235a..d4349d7 100644
--- a/dlls/kernel32/process.c
+++ b/dlls/kernel32/process.c
@@ -2819,7 +2819,7 @@ BOOL WINAPI IsWow64Process(HANDLE hProcess, PBOOL 
      FIXME("(%p %p) stub!\n", hProcess, Wow64Process);
      *Wow64Process = FALSE;
-    return TRUE;
+    return FALSE;

the application has no issues starting up (several other issues remain).

Is this an exception that Windows catches and we don't perhaps? The application 
runs fine on my Windows XP box.

Tried to use several debugchannels but to no avail.
