    Dont use task killers and you will not have this problem.

    May want to read the sticky on task killers.

    read the sticky on task killers and how linux works again! Linux manages it's own memory light years better than WinMo. Closing background apps will not save ur battery to a point to where u will notice a night and day difference. Not to mention u will most likely close an app that u shouldn't have causing stability issues in and around the operating system itself like the one u r describing. THIS IS NOT WINMO! Put down the task killer and let the phone mediate it's own memory for once!

    i use the stock music app alot and love how you can control it on the lock screen. I have not had any issues with it being "locked' to the screen. I just tried a little test...
    Started playing music from the widget
    put phone into sleep
    brought out of sleep so you could see lock screen music app
    paused music from that screen
    unlocked the phone
    moved around home screens
    put phone to sleep
    brought out of sleep and there was no more music app on lock screen.

    I would say just pause the music and go about using your phone and you won't have this issue
