I know, and I know the workaround with setting the tty in .bashrc. My  
point was that gpgsm *does* figure out the right ttyname and gpg doesn't,  
so it's just the suggestion (and I agree with you that "bug" isn't the  
right description) that gpg might use the same way like gpgsm...

Cheers, Albrecht.
