Well daemons keep it deep in their genes to detach themself.

Although I doubt that this is a good idea, it is easy:

  chmod  777 $(echo $GPG_AGENT_INFO | cut -d: -f1)

then make GPG_AGENT_INFO available to all users.  Insted of 777 you
should put all users into one group, chgrp the socket and chmod to 770.
