As I've said previously, I have lucid on an amd64 and am quite
happy to use alsa and forget PulseAudio,
1) in skype only, my voice gets totally distorted when using any
microphone, Audacity record/replay works fine with the same
hardware set-up.
2) skype help desk only seems to have heard of PulseAudio and
otherwise not too helpful
3) skype worked perfectly with karmic
4) if I attempt to remove all packages which reference Pulse-
Audio, kpackagekit wants to delete 120 odd dependencies,
which seems to include most of KDE.

Can you offer any thought which I might pass on to skype,
otherwise I guess I'll have to use win7 to phone all my skype
contacts which is a pain.
Apologies for binding on so much
