I'm fairly sure I tried it and it worked. It's a while ago, so I won't
testify in court on that ;). Just export the "secret key" from GnuPG
(actually with the divert-to-card stub), gpgsplit it, and replace the stub
with that off-card backup.
I use the GNU Privacy Guard (GnuPG) in combination with Enigmail.
You can send me encrypted mail if you want some privacy.
My key is available at http://wwwhome.cs.utwente.nl/~lebbing/pubkey.txt
