The error message above looks very fishy indeed: it looks like it's
attempting to read in that entire line, starting with GPG_AGENT_INFO and
ending with the export command, as the /name/ of a file. Try to find out
what is doing that (a miswritten config file somewhere?)

You can use the fuser or lsof commands to find all the processes that
have a given file open: that could come in handy; as could examining the
/proc/<pid> directory of gpg-agent (run with --daemon), and examining
what files it has open.
