[ubuntu] Skype 4.1 (Qt-app) on Ubuntu 12.04 LTS doesn't see Sony Wireless Headset

http://ubuntuforums.org – Hi Everyone, I have Sony Wireless Headset (SWH), it works just fine in Chrome, Rhythmbox, etc: connected, turned on and everything works fine. But Skype is a different world: it has it's own sound configuration, where it offers lots of options, where one can choose SWH. The issue I'm facing now is the following: Skype sees SWH for mic, but not for speakers/ringing, therefore it was fine just a few days ago. I tried to restart Skype, Ubuntu, apply the latest updates, restarts, configuration changes, nothing works in Skype, but just fine in other app's. Pulse audio and alsamixer work fine, (Hardware)
