I am pretty sure that this is a problem of the distribution.  The most
common problem is that pcscd has been started and thus gained
exclusive access to the reader.

BTW, I am using a Kobil Advanced reader all the day for ssh access as
well as for signing files.  The SPR532 does also work but the keyboard
of the KAAN has better keys.
