Ok, so the catch here is that the first command in the line is being
run as user wsc_gpg, but not the subsequent ones. You want want to put
a sudo -u wsc_gpg in front of the second gpg command in the pipeline as
well (otherwise it'll still run as root, and gpg will complain
about .gnupg directory not being owned by root).
