Sorry, we can't do much here because gnome-keyring is hijacking the IPC
between gpg and gpg-agent.  

The good news is that we have a tentative plan to allow gnome-keyring to
drop its interference with gpg-agent.  The main change we need to do is
to perform a dummy pinentry call whenever we remove a passphrase from
gpg-agent's cache.  This way gnome-keyring can sync its own passphrase
caching with the one done in gpg-agent.

Thanks for writing about these problems.
