GPG error code with successful signing operation

When GPG is set to use the gpg-agent but the gpg-agent is not available
(error message "gpg-agent is not available in this session" or "can't
connect to `/path/to/non-existent-pipe': No such file or directory"), it
produces a fatal error code of 2 even if the passphrase is successfully
entered at the prompt.  This strikes me as incorrect behavior.

Bad - You get pulled over for doing 90 in a school zone and you're drunk
off your ass again at three in the afternoon.
Worse - The cop is drunk too, and he's a mean drunk.
FUCK! - A mean drunk that's actually a swarm of semi-sentient
flesh-eating beetles.
