Just updated my Debian Lenny system this morning, but the cardman 4040
is still working with gpg and gpg2.
But I noticed, that mail signing fails with a similar error, if I just 
start the mail client. After executing "gpg --card-status" in another
terminal, everything works fine.

Can you post some configuration details ?

$ pccardctl info
PRODID_2="CardMan 4040"
$ pccardctl status
Socket 0:
  5.0V 16-bit PC Card
  Subdevice 0 (function 0) bound to driver "cm4040_cs"

$ cat /etc/udev/gnupg-ccid.rules 
# CardMan 4040 (PCMCIA device)
ACTION=="add", SUBSYSTEM=="cardman_4040", GROUP="scard", MODE="0660"

Package version should be the same in sid and lenny at the moment:
