Connection cannot be established when smartcard with 'Forward authentication' is enabled

The user gets a white screen and information that session cannot be established. This happens when trying to connect by SSH protocol with smartcard and forward authentication enabled. The SSH key cannot be forwarded to the remote computer and consequently user cannot authenticate on remote.

This command, used to forward smartcard credentials, reports the following error when executed manually:

ssh-add -s /usr/NX/lib/

Enter passphrase for PKCS#11:
Could not add card "/usr/NX/lib/": agent refused operation
