Disable Skype 5 Facebook tab via GPO

Hi

Does anyone know how to disable the Facebook tab in Skype 5 via GPO? We currently block access to Facebook on our internal company network and because of this we have some users that go into an endless loop of opening tabs with web browsers when Skype 5 starts. This can be any browser e.g. IE, Chrome, Firefox.. Normally we could turn off the tab in Skype 5 manually using the link in Skype but as we block Facebook this tab never appears! We can also manually edit a config file to do the same thing.

We would like to do it via a GPO as we have too many client pc's for this to be a manual procedure.

Script is no use as it's not a fixed path to the config file. Also the part we need to change does not appear in the config file until it connects to Facebook for the first time (which it never will in our situation) However i've just found out that this should be resolved by the latest Skype release (version 5.2) which came out yesterday.
