For the record, I've had to do this on a couple of machines, so I
figured I'd post the patch.  Still doesn't work reliably.  I need to log
in to the desktop, start a screen session, and then run

gpg-agent --daemon --disable-scdaemon --no-detach -vv --pinentry-program
/usr/local/bin/pinentry-curses > agent.log 2>&1 &

to get it to work.  After that I can sign git commits all day without
having to RDP back into the box.

Not the best, but it works.  If anyone has a better solution, please let
me know.
