Security issue? BB Bridge and .24



I don't know if this is a security issue, but I find it strange.


What happened? 

I had access to my smartphone's email app from the Playbook and was able to read the mail, before I entered my PIN-code (sim access, not the BB-pin), after reboot of the smartphone (just installed Bridge

I'm assuming the PIN also should not only protect access to a network, but also to the smartphone itself. 


This is possible with BB Bridge and .24.


Should this be 'normal' or not?

What is RIM's intended design at this point?
