I have used Gnome for a long time and always have seen this problem. When I close the laptop lid and re-open it, it shows my workspace for 1 second or less and then shows the login screen.I use Fedora but I have seen it in Ubuntu too.

My expected behavior is not to show my workspace and windows, and to directly show the login screen.

Is it a bug? If not, Why does it have this behavior?

I have also witnessed it. –  Portablejim Nov 25 '11 at 13:30
    
Ditto. This was not always the case though; I think I've only seen in in Ubuntu 10.10 or 11.04 until 11.10. –  l0b0 Nov 25 '11 at 13:40

Yes, I agree -- that seems legitimate. You should report this behavior.

Is it a bug? If not, Why does it have this behavior?

I guarantee you that if you open a bug with your distro or gnome directly you'll get an explicit indication of whether or not it's a bug. If you're lucky they'll explain why it has this behavior too.
