Curve control points active on locked layer?

Good morning everybody,

I’ve been doing a lot of Nurbs modelling lately and I’ve noticed that, when selecting a curve and its control points show, and I then lock the layer the same curve sits on, its control points display remains active, despite the curve not being selectable anymore.

Is there a way to turn off the control points preview in tandem with layer locking?
The control points of objects on a locked layer being visible kind of defeats the purpose of layer locking in the first place, doesn’t it?

I’m currently using Version 6 (6.22.20028.13212, 2020-01-28).

Thanks.

hmm yes i just tried that. i guess it should deselect automatically prior to locking
