I am having this problem as well.  I created both an RSA and a DSA
subkey, as well as (for testing purposes) a new separate key (DSA).

I had expected them to show up in 'ssh-add -l' (I use gpg-agent with
ssh-agent support) ... but they don't.

It would be very helpful to know: why this doesn't happen, and how to
get it to work.
