[pkg-gnupg-maint] Bug#835394: Same issue here

$work imposed using a yubikey on me for ssh auth. After a long painful
search on how to disable the gnome-keyring on mate, I finally had the
same issue as Ganneff, and it took me another long painful web search to
find out how to fix. So I also have to do:

gpg-connect-agent updatestartuptty /bye

to get the gpg-agent to prompt for the yubikey pin to fetch the key. I
would very much like to find a fix for this, typing it on each new
session is very annoying. I'm guessing this isn't the fault of
gnupg-agent, but whoever is starting it using the --supervised option. A
quick ps auxf shows:

 /lib/systemd/systemd --user
  \_ (sd-pam)
  \_ /usr/bin/gpg-agent --supervised
      \_ scdaemon --multi-server

and pstree output is:

        │         └─gpg-agent───scdaemon───2*[{pipe-connection}]

so really, it looks like systemd is the badly configured thing here.
