Hi Jason,
works like a charm. Indeed i can quote from gpg-agent(1):

You  should always add the following lines to your .bashrc or whatever
initialization file is used for all shell invocations:
  export GPG_TTY
It is important that this environment variable always reflects the output of
the tty command.

Should have focused a bit more on these two lines.
Thanks and keep up the good work! ;)
