Is there a simple way to stop enigmail from using gpg-agent for smartcards?

I'm using Thunderbird and a GPG smartcard for authenticating and encrypting my e-mail. But enigmail refuses to open a "enter pin" window and gives me an error about gpg-agent running etc.

I used to modify my thunderbird start-script to disable the use of the agent but I think there should be an easier way to do this.

There is a bug in enigmail. This link shows how to fix this bug. I found three enigmail.js and the correct enigmail.js was in "components" folder.
