thanks for your quick reply (as usual!).

 > Try 1 (change PIN).  This should sync it again.  BTW, you may do the same by

 >   $ gpg --card-edit
 >   Command> admin
 >   Command> passwd

$ gpg --change-pin
gpg: OpenPGP card no. D27600012401010100010000101E0000 detected

1 - change PIN
2 - unblock PIN
3 - change Admin PIN
Q - quit

Your selection? 1

[When pinentry pops up it says: "Please enter the PIN (`PIN') to unlock the 
card".  I then enter my pin, the box closes and the terminal repsonds with:]

gpg: sending command `SCD PASSWD' to agent failed: ec=6.130
Error changing the PIN: general error
