Agent forwarding failure when the socketdir was autodeleted

Using GnuPG 2.1.15 I'm trying to SSH into a remote machine with OpenSSH 6.7 as 
described under:

The problem is that the remote system uses systemd so /var/run/user/<uid> 
exits and GnuPG will use it.

But if I am not logged in or there is no gnupg process running. systemd 
autodeletes /var/run/user/<uid>/gnupg this causes the remote forward of the 
Socket to fail because the directory for the socket does not exist and SSH 
won't create it. :-/

Any ideas how to solve this without requireing changes to the root 
configuration of the remote machine?

I would happily update the wiki with a solution.
