When it works, the variable that shows up is GPG_AGENT_INFO not GNUPG.

Therein is the problem - this optimised distro has no servers at all so 
ssh-agent isn't installed. I can use ssh as a client (but it is very slow to 
authorise) but I have no ssh, telnet, ftp, mysql or httpd servers. I'm 
waiting to get hold of Mandrake 9.1 (can't download as I have no broadband) 
so that I can get better use out of KDE3.1

I have installed the same distro on two machines - on one I end up with three 
copies of gpg-agent but it works. On the other I need to start kmail from the 
bash script referred to before and end up with lots and lots of gpg-agents.
