Skype chat windows missing the close button?

Hi, here is a brief problem description. I open skype, everything works even placing phone calls. I can move the window, close it maximize it etc.
However when I open a chat, the window goes to the very top left corner of the screen and it doesn't have the window border and you can't close it or anything. I have to hit alt+F4 to close it.

Any idea how to fix it? I tried uninstalling it and reinstalling it, but nothing.

I am running Lubuntu 12.10 on a gateway desktop. thank you.
