Comment #5 on issue 250 by allbery.b: skype video window is missing buttons.

Skype is almost certainly embedding another application to do the video  
display; in that case, the embedding application (skype) normally acts  
as "window manager" for the embedded window, but in this case it may expect  
the window manager to do something.  In any case, the problem is that the  
embedded video window is being drawn on top of the part of the skype window  
containing the buttons.

Use xwininfo -tree on the video chat window to find out what the embedded  
window is, and then do xprop on that.
