Did you create an authentication key?  You might only have signing and
encryption keys.  You need a third key for authentication.  (A quick
look at doesn't show an auth subkey.)

I just setup Debian 6.0RC1 last week.  I have a key I've already been
using to ssh.  I had no problems.  Just needed to add some stuff to
.bashrc as documented in the manpage for gpg-agent.
