If you issue a smartcard related command before the reader is plugged
in, or unplug the reader and replug after scdaemon is running, the
process will lock up and you need to kill it.  There is a fix for this
in the git repository, but won't be available otherwise until the 2.0.19
release, whenever that happens.
