Thanks Isaac.

Hmmm. That would kill any gpg-agent process the user running it is allowed 
to kill, not just the one that was started "in the same environment".
(And return errors for any gpg-agent processes he's not allowed to...)

I was hoping for a bit more controlled solution, but maybe that is 
something that needs to be worked on upstream...

Cheers,

P.S. What is the "Secure memory is not locked into core" message about?
