I just rendered my expensive OpenPGP Card useless.
I tried to change the Admin PIN 3 times. I typed the right Admin PIN
(12345678), but GnuPG maybe cannot communicate properly with the "Cherry
SmartTerminal ST-1044"
I thought the timer would not count, because there was a I/O-Error, but
that is not right.

$gpg --change-pin
gpg: detected reader `Cherry SmartTerminal XX44 0'
