Thanks to that part of your mail, something clicked :-)
I tried to start gpg-agent from command line instead of from the scripts. Even 
though the daemon was starting it was not taking connections. A little more 
googling and the error messages made me check the gpg-agent.conf once again.

I had blindly followed the instructions from kmail.kde.org thus putting path 
to pinentry in gpg-agent.conf as /usr/local/bin/pinentry-qt instead 
of /usr/bin/pinentry-qt. Changed it to correct path and it works now.

Probably the most stupid mistake since I did an accidental "rm -fR /"

Thanks for your help.
