I used that reader for a long time.  However with the v2 OpenPGP card it
stopped to work reliable.  There are rumors that Kobil had problems with
2048 bit keys and thus I didn't looked closer at the problem and
switched to another reader.

If you want to look closer at the problem, you may add the option
debug-ccid-driver two times to your scdaemon.conf.

You may also want to test it using pcscd instead of the internal driver.
