Non-deterministic behavior using GnuPG and a smart-card

Hi everyone,

since a few days I'm observing a rather non-deterministic behavior,
where GnuPG sometimes fails to find my private key, that is located at a
smart-card and sometimes everything works.
I wrote about the problem in more detail at

However, if anyone of you has an idea, what the problem could be, I'd be
pleased to hear about it.
