Same problem here. I am using a 04e6:5115 SCM Microsystems, Inc. SCR335
SmartCard Reader and GnuPG 1.4.1 + ccid patch. 

Although IIRC 4 weeks ago it worked here on my machine, but I can't
remember which packages I updated during this time. I am using Debian
testing, is it possible, that is has something to do with some usb
