Notifications are visible to anyone when screen is locked

Hi all,

There are a lot of bugreports and blueprints concerning the notification
system so I really could not find if this has been discussed already or not,
but here goes:

If i am signed in to MSN (pidgin) and lock my screen (ctrl+alt+delete) then
the screensaver comes on and locks the screen BUT all the messages I receive
or other notifications are still visible (or rather appear as normal) on the
upper right corner of the screen.

I think when people lock their machine it is because of security reasons and
visible IM conversation is in no way secure.

Any thoughts?
