We found such a case some time ago: Signing a key non-
interactively. When the key to be signed had an expiry
date, gpg asked for how long the signature should be
valid (even when --no-tty and --batch and --yes were
specified). I tested last week and this bug is obviously
gone, so I do not know of any other issue like that.

Cheers, Olaf
