Same thing here, only that I have an SCM Microsystems SCR335 reader.
Actually, I was somewhat surprised that I had to install PC/SC at all, since <http://gnupg.org/howtos/card-howto/en/smartcard-howto-single.html> says that is is "supported by GnuPG directly".
lsusb finds it:
Bus 003 Device 003: ID 04e6:5115 SCM Microsystems, Inc. SCR335 SmartCard Reader
While playing with ps, I noticed a seahorse-agent running. When killed, a call to gpg --card-status would hang forever. Maybe this is of importance..?
