[TIP] Tools for Windows GUI testing ?

I am automating tests for a messaging application which uses Skype as one of
it's possible
frontends. I have tried to use watsup (
http://www.tizmoi.net/watsup/intro.html) and
pywinauto (http://www.openqa.org/pywinauto/) as possible tools.

Pywinauto was not able to find the Skype client at all. (Or I just can't use
it properly...).

With watsup, I was able to find the Skype client window, and even use some
of the components.
However, watsup does not support manipulating the tab control, which is
central part of the client.

Has anyone used some other python tools to automate Windows GUI testing, or
does someone have
specific experience of automating the Skype client?

Thanks for any suggestions,
