The session could continue with other publickey auth or even password,
that could be asked after. Anyway I was confuses by the behaviour as a
user, such that it eventually locked my card. I agree there is no
clear cut solution, so I'll just live with it as it is.

OpenSC does. I have no idea what is the OpenSC quota for ssh users.
Anyway the libraries can be waiting for the clients to support it!
I'll provide a patch and hope it is acceptable.

Thanks for the replies!
