My rules are in /etc/udev/rules.d/45-gnupg-ccid.rules and are as
# cat 45-gnupg-ccid.rules
## Omnikey CardMan 4040
ACTION=="add", SUBSYSTEM=="cardman_4040", GROUP="scard", MODE="0660"
Interestingly, I had also these rules:
# omnikey cardman 4040
Due to having libopenct1 openct packages installed. I removed those as
they are not needed and I wanted to make sure they weren't interfering.

This is what I have:
ii gnupg 1.4.6-2.1 GNU privacy guard - a free PGP replacement
un gnupg2 <none> (no description available)
ii gpgv 1.4.6-2.1 GNU privacy guard - signature verification tool
ii hal 0.5.11~rc2-1 Hardware Abstraction Layer
un libccid <none> (no description available)
ii libgcrypt11 1.4.0-3 LGPL Crypto library - runtime library
ii libgpg-error0 1.4-2 library for common error values and messages in GnuPG components
ii libpcsclite1 1.4.100-2 Middleware to access a smart card using PC/SC (library)
ii udev 0.114-2 /dev/ and hotplug management daemon
It was my understanding that libccid was not installed, because gnupg
has its own implementation, and gnupg2 is similarly not required,
although I have some of the binary packages built from the gnupg2
package, such as gpg-agent, installed. Just to make sure, I installed
libccid (1.3.5-1) and gnupg2 (2.0.9-1), which gets this set of packages
to the same as yours
I've also rebooted and have not had any luck, using kernel 2.6.24-1-686.
