if GPG_AGENT_INFO is wrong then the same problem will occur this happens if
you have not added
eval "$(gpg-agent --daemon)"
to your startkde script or some such
what this does is initialises and exports GPG_AGENT_INFO when you login
you also need
kill `echo $GPG_AGENT_INFO|cut -f 2 -d :`
in the cleanup section as otherwise you end up with more than one agent and
if you have manually run
and then added the resulting export to your login file or some such then this
is wrong as the export changes everytime gpg-agent gets run.
i hope my hair tearing session from a month ago has helped
