I also added a "sleep 1" at the top of my inner gnupg wrapper, it the
one which runs with the lock held.  This means that there's a gap of
at least 1s between any two actual gnupg processes.  That doesn't seem
to have made much difference either.

If I emailed you from an address @fyvzl.net or @evade.org.uk, that is
a private address which bypasses my fierce spamfilter.
