is there a file named "test-message" ? you can find out with:
ls -l test-message
If that doesn't exist, you can create a simple text file with "example"
in it with:
echo example > test-message
> command gpg-agent shows "gpg-agent: gpg-agent running and available"

You might do better to debug this problem with gpg over on gnupg-users
(i've cc'ed them here). If you want to follow up on that mailing list,
