D'oh! Sorry! It is working after all.

I didn't realize that the `gpg2` command was starting the agent
automatically. And I didn't realize that when I first tried changing the
configuration, there was an already-running agent that I had to kill first
in order to get it to reread the config.

It's all working great now. Thank you so much! And sorry for the bad info
