Omnikey based readers don't work with that card because the readers
don't support Extended Length APDUs.  Well, under Windows they work
because their driver uses undocumented tricks to do it.  I tried to the
same in GnuPG's internal driver but that is not really reliable.



Die Gedanken sind frei.  Ausnahmen regelt ein Bundesgesetz.
