Chrono here, first I like to say I like your Software and I will do anything to help out on reporting bugs with extreme prejudice, now on with my first bug issue:

Computer: Dell XPS M1730
Video: Nividia 8700 SLI 
CPU: Hitachi 32 bit 
OS: Dual Boot - Ubuntu 8.10 / Windows Vista Ultimate

I was trying Skype 3.8 on ubuntu 8.10 and the install was garbage...doesn't even work and I am attempting to flush the entire skype program off the OS...however whenever I click on the Add/Remove button while its selected it doesn't go away. I removed the skype files manually from the windows and program files folder and clcik on the add and remove button again and it just generates the program again. It seems the Skype 3.8 wan't installed fully since it didn't take that long installing it which meant a problem, and now its stuck in libo as a broken program that stays on the directory of my wine installer. 

Here is a screen shot of my problem: http://i418.photobucket.com/albums/pp270/Chrono_Reaper/Screenshot.png

As you see whenever I click on the skype app on the list labeled as an "X" meaning the option gives me to uninstall it, it just reverts back to the skype logo and creates a new desktop shortcut. and the files still remain. Is there any way to get rid of this problem permanently?
