I must have misunderstood a previous statement:

The key that I had set in TB+EM Accounts Settings/OpenPGP Security, and
that I was trying to use is a 1024 bits RSA key:
$ gpg --edit-key 94FD1621

That key is correctly selected and used with the OpenPGP card, when I
use Apple's Mail+GPGMail.bundle.
TB+EM does not, apparently.
Thank you for your feedback.
