If you swipe up just on the lock icon itself, it just unlocks to the main screen, and your notifications should stay in the bar.
This may not be what is happening, but it was something I thought of that could explain why you are seeing behavior that others aren't with this.
I thought of that. I don't think I am but I'll test it tonight and pay more attention.
I installed widget locker and am making a custom lock screen. That may solve the problem.
Something I did notice actually this morning, is if I swipe down the status bar and choose something else, like an email, it doesn't clear. So it does only happen when unlocking the phone. But as I said I'll check that tonight. It makes sense.
