I have a small issue with my smartcard (FSFE - OpenPGP card) on OSX.

gpg --card-edit lets me edit data on the card, while gpg2 --card-edit  
does not.

In both cases, the card info is list, if I try to change the language  
setting, it works nicely with gpg:

Command> lang
Language preferences: en
gpg: 3 Admin PIN attempts remaining before card is permanently locked

However, if I try to do the same with gpg2, I run into trouble:

Command> lang
Language preferences: en
gpg: error setting lang: Permission denied

The versions I have installed are:
gpg (GnuPG) 1.4.8
gpg (GnuPG) 2.0.9

Does anyone have any idea of why this could be?

Best regards,
