Figured out my problem. SSH_AUTH_KEY environment variable was being
overwritten. On Ubuntu I went to:

System -> Preferences -> Startup Applications

Found "SSH Key Agent" which runs the command
"/usr/bin/gnome-keyring-daemon --start --components=ssh" and then
disabled it. Logged out and back in again, and SSH_AUTH_KEY was set
correctly, and "ssh-add -L" started to show my authentication key on the
smartcard. ssh works fine now.
