Solved! I found that if I create a directory called env in ~/.kde and put in a
shell script to start gpg-agent, it works perfectly (i found this by looking
at startkde).
So to fix: create a directory ~/.kde/env and put in this file:
eval "$(gpg-agent --daemon)"

Make it executable, and you are good to go, restart x, and it Just Works (TM)
Now you can type in your GPG passphrase once, and it will be remembered for a
while so you dont have to eg. type it in 6 times for replying to encrypted
mail! It also stops kgpg complaining that the agent is not running.

Hope that helps,
