it is good that you write up your feedback here, so we can investigate 
together. I take it that you are using Gpg4win 2.2.6 (latest version)
with the GnuPG coming with it?

(It is always good to recheck and give the version number of the software you 
are using when writing about specific software behaviour.)

You could try to get a verbose diagnostic output from gpg-agent and look
into it. 

Another step would be to ask: Does somebody else work with a smartcard
on windows and have the timeouts working or not working?
