Hi Zbigniew,
interestingly...i've had this problem a couple of times a few days ago. The
first call would work fine, the following would not at all. Restarting skype
would fix it, but then it'd stop working again.
what kernel + world (from what day) are you running?
mine is 
FreeBSD 6.2-STABLE FreeBSD 6.2-STABLE #10: Sun Jul  1 09:50:58 EST 2007 

World from same day or a day or 2 earlier.
pcm0@pci0:27:0: class=0x040300 card=0x05b71014 chip=0x26688086 rev=0x03 hdr=0x00
    vendor     = 'Intel Corporation'
    device     = '82801FB/FR/FW/FRW Intel High DefiNition Audio Controller'
    class      = multimedia

Sound drivers from -STABLE. Skype 1.3 from ports.
