Following up to list: systemd is configured to start specific instances
of gpg-agent.

Text added to <>:

  Users of systemd will have to weigh their options carefully, and
  consider editing /usr/lib/systemd/user/gpg-agent.service to change the
  paths to the binaries, then run systemctl daemon-reload and log out
  and back in again, otherwise gpg will launch the wrong gpg-agent.
