app_readcert failed (smartcard)

I'm trying to use my OpenPGP smartcard on openSUSE 11.1 which has gpg2
I'm using a Reiner SCT cyberjack reader and pcsc-lite (for now) to
access the reader from scdaemon.

But I get the following error for a simple gpg --card-status:

wolfi at Hygiea:~> gpg --card-status
gpg: OpenPGP Karte ist nicht vorhanden: Nicht unterstützte

In scdaemon.log that translates to:

scdaemon[18495.0] DBG: <- READKEY OPENPGP.1
scdaemon[18495.0] DBG: -> [ 44 20 28 31 30 3a 70 75 62 6c 69 63 ...(165
bytes skipped) ]
scdaemon[18495.0] DBG: -> OK
scdaemon[18495.0] DBG: <- READCERT OPENPGP.1
2009-01-30 22:24:17 scdaemon[18495] app_readcert failed: Nicht
unterstützte Verarbeitungsaufgabe
scdaemon[18495.0] DBG: -> ERR 100663420 Nicht unterstützte
Verarbeitungsaufgabe <SCD>

What is the problem with that?

Another question is about the status of ctapi support. I failed to set
it up and read that it's deprecated. But my online banking software is
also using ctapi so I think having gnupg using pcsc-lite and the
onlinebanking software ctapi interferes somehow.
