gpg-agent does not cache passphrase anymore

I upgraded from FC2 to FC3 to the same upstream versions of stable and
development gnupg bits, but now the passphrase doe not get cached
anymore, how can I debug this?

When gpg tries to sign a mail, I still get the pinentry popup, give my
passphrase and the mail gets signed, so communication of the different
components is still in order. But trying to sign again reasks
immediately for the passphrase.

The used components are:

$ rpm -q gnupg gnupg2 pinentry libgcrypt gpgme pinentry

The gpg-agent config (~/.gnupg/gpg-agent.conf) is

pinentry-program /usr/bin/pinentry-gtk
default-cache-ttl 7200
