I can't replicate that while also using --local-user.  The only changes
for gpgsm since beta834 are related to the key storage.  Without any log
output I can't help very much.  Please check that the correct gpg-agent
is used and not some older version - has it been started and is still
running after the test (gpg-connect-agent 'getinfo version' /bye)

For verification the card is not used.  Are you sure that the signature
has been created properly?  I heard of problems with pcscd and
policy-kit.  Maybe you missed an error message.
