Hi All,

it seams that gpg and macos 10.5 are not on good terms for the smartcard:

flops:~ remco$ gpg --card-status --no-use-agent
gpg: detected reader `SCR335 USB Smart Card Reader 00 00'
gpg: pcsc_status failed: insufficient buffer (0x80100008) 35

gpg: Ohhhh jeeee: ATR returned by pcsc_status is too large
secmem usage: 0/0 bytes in 0/0 blocks of pool 0/32768
Abort trap

(and I guess it somehow thinks it should try speaking dutch to me....)

This is on macos 10.5 on ppc with gpg 1.4.7

Met vriendelijke groeten,

Remco Post

computer industry didn't even foresee that the century was going to
end." -- Douglas Adams
