That doesn't show which process is starting that gpg. I would start by

$ ps fax | less

and then from within less type for instance


which will search for the line containing that PID. Then you can see its
ancestry (the f option makes a -f-orest of parent/child relations).

There are more ways to investigate, but this seems a good start.
