Unfortunately, this is not working. Sylpheed-claws calls up the GPG
agent just fine - as long as there are no keys on the card (I am using
my card for subkeys). If there are keys on the card, sylpheed-claws acts
like it does when the wrong passphrase is entered (it displays a
catch-all error message). How do you think this can be solved?
