IIRC, I added some workarounds but eventually gave up due to too many
problems.  Key generation always failed with Omnikey based readers and
signature creation only works in some cases.  

I have a whole bunch of those readers and they are all crap.  Well,
except for the Cherry keyboard, it does work well in the server room
(w/o card).
