Probably the GPG agent is not availabe in this session. ;)

I'm no gpg expert, but there are various command line options related to
a gpg agent mentioned in the manual ("man gpg"), like 

  Try to use the GnuPG-Agent.  With this option, GnuPG first tries to connect to
  the agent before it asks for a passphrase. --no-use-agent disables this option.
  Override the value of the environment variable 'GPG_AGENT_INFO'. This is
  only used when --use-agent has been given.  Given that this option is  not
  anymore  used  by gpg2, it should be avoided if possible.

Maybe some of these can help.
