Hello Daiki,

In a first, very quick test your code doesn't work for me (the agent
asks for the passphrase but decryption fails.

But after having a look at the status output from --status-fd with
--use-agent and --no-use-agent I'm starting to doubt that your idea
can work at all.  The status output is in both cases identical...  :-(

Hopefully I'm missing something.

I'm using 
gpg (GnuPG)
gpg-agent (GnuPG) 1.9.20
