I had the same problem here. Uninstalling seahorse solved my issue. I
run Ubuntu 7.10, gpg 1.4.6 and thunderbird 2.0.12 with enigmail 0.95.6.
In thunderbird it didn't work to do anything regarding the CryptoCard,
$ gpg --card-status
gave me the usual info to the card. I didn't perform further tests, but
could do it if relevant.
