Right, smartcards are pretty strict in what they accept as input. Thus
you can't use certain keys on a smartcard for different purposes. In
particular the signing key, which is in most cases also the primary key,
allows only signing and even checks the padding.
I am not sure whether this works, but the OP could try
gpg --try-all-secrets -vd
Form the man page:
Don't look at the key ID as stored in the message but try all secret
keys in turn to find the right decryption key. This option forces
the behaviour as used by anonymous recipients (created by using
--throw-keyids or --hidden-recipient) and might come handy in case
where an encrypted message contains a bogus key ID.
Die Gedanken sind frei. Ausnahmen regelt ein Bundesgesetz.
