I just confirmed this by trying it.
Windows 7, Iphone hooked to computer via USB for charging, itunes closed, auto-lock set to 1min, exchange activesync enabled, playing music listening via headphones.
Results: Auto-lock will not initiate while in this environment.
I unplugged and tried the same thing, auto-lock worked.
I guess auto-lock does not initiate when plugged in via USB. My next test will be while plugged into a real power source (the wall socket).
I see the same thing when using a vehicle charger - it doesn't lock when in iPod IF it's playing music (if paused or at a setlist menuu, it will lock). I think this feature was added somewhere around 2.0 (I considered it a feature as I didn't have to attempt to unlock while driving just to skip a song, etc).
