No this is not correct. KPOwersave lock the screen before your machine 
suspend. The problem is that KDE need to long to create the blank screen and 
lock your X-Session. We had such problems also in the past with SUSE. This is 
'fixed' (it simply work now) now since our KDE developers changed the dcop 
interface for the lock to a blocking methode which first come back if the 
screen is really locked.

IMO: yes it should.
