Skype on a mac, what to do when it fails

Skype today refused to receive messages. I could see the balloons, but the message-boxes were empty.

Rebooting failed.
Updating Skype failed.

I got tired and removed my account’s local db (history and other stuff) and it all worked as a charm.

Local db located at ~/Library/Application Support/Skype/[username]
