If you use \lyricsto or \addlyrics, than the durations of each
lyrics syllable is completely determined by the rhythm of the
music voice that you have attached the lyrics to, so in that
situation a \skip X will just denote a space with the same duration
as the corresponding note, just as you have observed.
However, if you don't use \lyricsto or \addlyrics and explicitly
specify the durations for each syllable, then \skip 1 will work
exactly as you expected.

There was a recent discussion on the mailing list on this topic and
I think it resulted in some clarifications of the manual, however, I'm
not certain if those changes were done also in the manual for version

In lyricmode \skip 1 goes the next note in a series of 8th notes? I can't seem to get this number to represent anything.
