A quick Google search will likely turn up all sorts of things. But from my previous research here are two things with which to be concerned.
While it uses AES encryption, Skype is very proprietary and thus the way they've implemented AES is unknown. Just because they use it doesn't mean it works if they've implemented it incorrectly.
Skype is a P2P application. Therefore it is possible that your call is being routed through many other computers along the way. This isn't normally the case, and of course it is encrypted (see above), but the fact that your call is going through an unknown third party system should be cause for concern. If they're using a weak encryption implementation and it is going through another person's computer it would be trivial to eavesdrop on a conversation.
