The Amazon MP3 player gets around it somehow, in a rather odd/annoying way.

If in the program you don't ask for a "lock screen controls" you'll get a small lock screen widget if music is playing, that takes up about the top third of the screen. If you ask for "lock screen controls" you'll get a whole screen lock screen widget which interferes with entering your password if that's what you want to do.
