Programming makes Skype drop?

I’m wondering if anyone else has seen this…I’m helping my cofounder get his Model 01 set up over Skype & every time he flashes it, the audio cuts out of our Skype call. We’re both running Ubuntu 18.04 & guessing it has something to do with the ModemManager.

Does he use an USB audio device by any chance? I don’t see how or why flashing would interfere there but one might never know…

Does he have the Model01 udev rules installed?

Yup, the udev rules are installed; I think he may be using a USB microphone. Not really a big deal, but kind of weird.
