gpg-agent caching with smartcard

I can't seem to make gpg-agent cache smartcard PIN at all,
whether signing, decrypting or authenticating ssh.
All of those work fine otherwise, but I have to enter the PIN 
every time.
I did set "signature PIN" to "not forced" in the card.

I am using subkeys, which may or may not be relevant,
gpg version 1.4.2, gpg-agent 1.9.20

Searching I found only one reference to similar problem, with
no solution:

Is this a bug, or am I missing something?
