About once a week, gpg-agent starts consuming 100% of a CPU according
to top, and any client that tries to get an answer from it hangs.

kill -9 doesn't succeed.  Killing with Process Explorer works, and
then everything is OK for another week or so. 

Anyone else experiencing this?  Any advice on how to debug?
