You are either running a version of gpg-agent which is too old or gpg
started that version of gpg-agent but expected another one. Or there is
another daemon taking over the connection between gpg2 and gpg-agent.
Seahorse as well as the gnome-keychain(?) used to do this (which is
something they should not do).
Adding the options "--verbose --debug 2048" to the command line may give
you some more insight. Make sure all gpg-agent's are stopped.
Die Gedanken sind frei. Ausnahmen regelt ein Bundesgesetz.
