After installing GNUPG 1.4.2, I can now access my OpenPGP smartcards
(bought at Kernelconepts) using my SPR532 reader.  However, the pinpad
of the reader is not used.  An example:

  ~> gpg --card-edit
  gpg: WARNING: using insecure memory!
  gpg: please see for more information

  General key info..: [none]
  Command> passwd
  gpg: OpenPGP card no. D2760001240101010001000005B60000 detected
  Enter PIN: [Here I have to enter my PIN via my computer's keyboard]

The version of the reader's firmware is 5.05 IIRC.  

What may be the reason for the problem?
