Actually gpg-agent does this for many years and terminates itself if
another gpg-agent process has taken over the socket. This was required
due to a race on Windows but the code works on Unix as well.
It is check_own_socket_thread which is triggered every minute. The code
can actually be put into common/ so that it can be reused by dirmngr.
Not a big deal, I can do that tomorrow.
