Do you have scdaemon installed?  If so, you should put

debug 1024
debug 2048
log-file /home/foo/scdaemon.log

into the ~/.gnupg/scdaemon.conf and kill the scdaemon process.  Make
sure that it really got killed.  Then do an "ssh-add -l" again and
watch the log file.

Note, that gpg-agent starts scdaemon and restarts it if has crashed.
