Skype and Leopard firewall

Leopard's firewall breaks Skype because it modifies application bits when a program is added to the firewall. As first mentioned on Accelerate Your Mac, applications that run a self-integrity check (as I believe Skype does) will fail to function properly after Leopard modifies the program. The solution? Disable Leopard's firewall.
