when I remove a cryptostick and try to access it with i.e. gpg2 --card-status 
I get an error

gpg: selecting openpgp failed: ec=6.32848
gpg: OpenPGP card not available: general error

In this case scdaemon log shows

scdaemon[4167]: chan_7 <- SERIALNO openpgp
2012-06-05 14:35:39 scdaemon[4167] PC/SC RESET failed: invalid value 
scdaemon[4167]: chan_7 -> ERR 100663404 Card error <SCD>
scdaemon[4167]: chan_7 <- RESTART
scdaemon[4167]: chan_7 -> OK

I found ticket which describes this 
error. Are there any plans to downport the fix described in the ticket to
