mine does that too, if you click the back button on the contact screen, then select your contact group, it will load them, very annoying indeed.

ive noticed that since JBing that Skype no longer seems to run in the background as it does on regular iOS4, when you go back to the app it seems to be signing back on again, it plays the sound at least.

anyone else find this and is there a way around it? (prefer not to go back to using backgrounder, as want to keep JB apps running to minimum to save battery)

I think this is just a problem with Mobile Substrate. Since you HAVE TO HAVE Mobile Substrate to run Skype while jailbroken, some features probably get a little skewed. Originally Skype wouldn't even run at all on a JB'en phone because the developers were scared to support it so they just disabled, so Freeman integrated the fix.

ended up getting Backgrounder and using the new (at least dont remember it last time i used it) setting of apps only background if Native, and now Skype stays running when i press the home button.

Still behaves oddly when in app, like with typing a message theres a big gap on screen, but its better than nothing i guess.
