socket problem with gpg-connect-agent

When using gpg-connect-agent on Ubuntu Linux the following error appears:

can't connect to `/home/me/.gnupg/S.gpg-agent': No such file or directory
gpg-connect-agent: can't connect to the agent: IPC "connect" Aufruf

I found out that the script proposed at
solves the problem for me. But I am wondering why gpg-connect-agent does
not work out of the box? Is the package maintainer responsible or what
is the reason?
