gpg-agent miscoordination on homedir

apparently gpg-agent has indeed some issues with non-standard homedirs

I have been trying to get gpg4win to work over gpgme;
but passphrase dialog was not showing in my project and bad passphrase was
always raised.

It kept puzzling me until after alot of googling around I reached this:

Basically what I did in my project is to set a custom home directory via

pre-starting the gpg-agent with the same argumes as the gpgme would PLUS the
 --homedir set to the same value passed to gpgme_ctx_set_engine_info fixed
the issue and made the pass entry dialog show correctly.

I think it might have something to do with the gpg-agent not finding the
socket descriptor.
