The bug diagnostic is a side-effect of the out of core error.  I'll fix
that for libgcrypt 1.8 but it is not a problem.

Libgcrypt has the fix for the secure memory.  Thus the above should not
happen unless you have set an ulimit.  Are you sure that the running
gpg-agent is up-to-date?

   gpg-connect-agent 'getinfo version' /bye

shows this.  However, gpg did not show a warning so I expect this is 
all fine.  

We need to have a test case to replicate and valgrind the problem.
