Should have made this more clear, sorry. This is the first time I tried
using this card with GnuPG, what I meant is that it had been working
perfectly with other applications (via PKCS#11, PKCS#15 and dedicated
SmartCard-HSM tools).

I see. In other words, even though scdaemon does support this type of
card now gpg itself (I've just tried gpgsm, I've got no X.509
certificates on that card but at least no errors appear) still requires
an OpenPGP SmartCard?
