I am not familiar with encfs, it maybe that it does not support
some file operations that gpgsm wants to use.

You could try to 
a) run gpgsm with more debug options to see if you get a better clue, e.g.
   gpgsm -vvv --debug-all --list-keys
(be careful with posting the results, it my contain sensitive information.)
b) run an strace on the process to see which operation it tries to perform
when failing.
