Right, that is obvious.  Actually I am not very happy with the
use-keybox option because this needs to be set into gpg.conf and
gpgsm.conf.  And in other as you noted.  This is quite confusing and it
can be expected to be a common issue in bug reports.

I have two ideas on how to fix that:

1. Add an option "enable" to keyboxd.conf and let all other tools read
   this config file too.

2. Provide a gnupg.conf file which can be used for such system wide
   options.  log-file socket:// would also be a canditate for such a

The former would be the quick way to handle things, the latter the more
universal solution.
