I know this problem but there is no good solution for this. We could
hack around it for on-disk keys but as soon as a smartcard is used, that
smartcard may want a PIN in any case and thus any delayed cache expiring

into gpg.agent.conf for a one hour timeout:
This option asks the Pinentry to timeout after n seconds with no
user input. The default value of 0 does not ask the pinentry to
timeout, however a Pinentry may use its own default timeout value
in this case. A Pinentry may or may not honor this request.
Die Gedanken sind frei. Ausnahmen regelt ein Bundesgesetz.
