According to Werner the missing "stubs" for the private keys (which are on the 
card), should be generated by gpg "on-the-fly" if you issue a command like 
--card-status or the like...
(Please have a look in the mail-archive with keywords "opengpg card")

But here this _never_ happend with all of our cards and all version of 
gpg! :-( The stubs were only generated in the "key issuing" gpg installation.

Our only chance to move the stubs to other/new workstations was to manually 
export the (priv.) keys/stubs or move the keyrings.

HTH. Salut, Jörg
