FYI, what you want to do doesn't make sense. :)

You should read the man page, and learn about inactivity timeouts for 
gpg-agent. Also, you can wipe the agent altogether quite easily.

Your concern about people gaining access to the console is well founded, 
but there are better solutions already available to you.
