The windows client works until I login. Furthermore at this point, I get no useful output when I run it from the command line. Does anyone know of any workarounds/dll's I may need to get it working? I just need to chat, so video/audio etc I don't care about.

What version of Wine, and what version of Skype for Windows? The most recent test in the AppDB for Skype 5.0 says that basic chat works in Wine 1.3.6, and no tweaks were mentioned. If you're not using the latest development release of Wine, upgrade.
