i think that was there before too..

The whole point of a pattern or pin lock is too prevent the lock screen from opening unless correct input is provided. Whereas lockscreen widgtes take u directly inside..

If they were enabled with pattern/pin lock the whole idea of security would be defeated as anyone copuld open your phone just by swiping them. Its a logical enhancement and not a bug.

sometimes I want to see the widget without unlocking my phone. And how I want to unlock my phone is my choice, whether password or pattern or none. But I should be able to see my widget.

i widget is kind of a short cut. If you swipe it across it opens up the correspoding app and also unlocks the phone simultaneously. This cant be done in case of pateern/pin lock,
