gpg-agent stops working after OSX Upgrade to Yosemite

Assigned to Problems #28634. As reported in Tender:

Situation: I'm using the gpg-tools on OSX for yubikey-ssh-authentification. After Upgrade to OSX 10.10 Yosemite, gpg-agent seems to stop working after some time.

Installed latest gpg-tools from this website.
Added "enable-ssh-support" to .gnupg/gpg-agent.conf and restarted mac
export SSH_AUTH_SOCK=~/.gnupg/S.gpg-agent.ssh
Connect to an ssh-server.

After some time (~1-2 Hours maybe, not sure), the agent isn't working anymore. It's still listed as active in the processlist, but everything related to my yubikey fails (no error, just nothing happens, no segfaults).
Connecting to a ssh-server results in nothing, as well as gpg --card-status

Temporary Fix:
On shell: Kill gpg-agent with signal 9 and execute gpg --card-status, to launch the gpg-agent again. This works for another 1-2 hours.
