Thank you, James.

Well, I haven't tried your solution yet. But I will soon, I'll bet...

I think the scdaemon you're talking about is:

> root      3672  0.0  0.1  17948  1380 ?        Ssl  10:20   0:00 /usr/sbin/pcscd

But, what is weird is that when this combination


fails, I can still sign and decrypt electronic messages through the
smartcard, handled through gpg-agent and the scdaemon (I guess).

But perhaps the smartcard is handled in a different way in these two
different cases.

Is their anyway to monitor more closely what is happening than just
looking at the logs?
