My first guess: The Gemalto reader is actually not listed in that udev
file. Can you send me the output of 

$ lsusb

so I can check? There is also a script [1] that does the udev stuff
automatically. I always try to integrate new readers into the script if
someone tells me the USB device ID :-)
Also, you might want to try out the Card howto [2] which is probably the
most up-to-date one around.
