Please add

--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---
  debug 1024
  debug 2048
  log-file /this/is/my/scdaemon.log
--8<---------------cut here---------------end--------------->8---

to scdaemon.conf, kill scdaemon, and try again.  The log file will then
contain a log of all APDUs send and received to/from the card.  Post it
here.  Make sure to change the PINs of the card before you start the
logging so that you want reveal your PINs.
