That should work.  I have not tested --use-standard-socket a lot but it
has been introduced just for this purpose. 

BTW, you don't need to set --log-file on the command line.  You may at
any time change it in gpg-agent.conf and give gpg-agent a HUP to reread
most of the config file.  As an alternative to HUP you may use
 "gpgconf --reload gpg-agent"

I have no experience with webmin.
