I suspect this means GnuPG is finding the secret key stub created when
you moved your keys to the old card. Before importing the backup you
made the first time around, I would try exporting the relevant secret
key (so that you have a backup copy of the stubs...), then deleting
that secret key from your keyring gpg --delete-secret-key your_key_ID.
