Bug#322208: seahorse-agent: fails to be accessed from debuild

As reported in the bug below when using seahorse-agent and debuild it
will always fail with the "problem with the agent - disabling agent use"
error (it also happens to me). But if I use debsign after build process,
I can sign the package using seahorse-agent fine.

I am completely lost about where should I start looking for the
bug/problem. This is why I am CCing both lists. Perhaps problem is in
debuild itself, but any hint on how debugging this would be appreciated.
