Skype bug that posts an emoticon on everyline you type

Hey hey,

here there is a nice Xmas bug for you.

If you, like me, are running the version 5.5.0.124 here there is a small How To that allows you to send each message with an emoticon post-pended to it.

The issue can be reproduced any time in any chat window, until is closed.

Here there is how it works :

  1. Open a friend’s chat window
  2. Type a message to your friend containing an emoticon
  3. Press the UP arrow to edit the message
  4. Copy paste the emoticon bazillion of times (I actually make a row of around 15 emoticons, copy it and then paste it keeping pressed CTRL+V for around ten seconds)
  5. Press enter
  6. Now type your messages to your friend: each line should have an emoticon !

If it doesn’t work for you, try to put more emoticons while editing the message.
