Dear Clugers,

I temporarily solved the problem as follows.  In
/usr/share/alsa/alsa.conf I simply commented out the line

 pcm.hdmi cards.pcm.hdmi

and now Skype works again as expected.  I am not quite sure what this
does, but it somehow seems to me that the configuration of Alsa under
Debian might not be sound, for the HDMI interface anyway.  

Skype's bad was to insist on a properly configured HDMI interface
although I did not physically have one.

Oh well, I thought somebody would find it interesting.
