I realized that immediately after sending the mail to the list. I
upgraded to 0.68 and tried again with the same results. From what I can
tell, the agent is receiving the request for the key, but not serving
it. Before I disabled scdaemon, gpg-agent would complain that it
couldn't find the key on the card meaning that the agent was receiving
the request. Why it isn't serving the key is the question, I believe.
