Webworks App gets killed on security lock



I created a Webworks App. When I test it the following happens


- I start App

- I put App in Bckground (via "Hangup" button)

- If I check in the task switcher I still see it

- I lock my phone (BB 9900 - / via the standard BB Secuity Lock

- I unlock my phone by entering pw

- If I check now in the task switcher app is gone - it seems to have been killed by the locking


I want to write a GPS log app, which should also keep logging when phone is locked - this behaviour makes that impossible.


I tried also with another webworks app - same problem


I checked the system log (ALT -lglg) but nothing really revealing there.


Is this a known bug? Any workarounds?
