Select Objects in Layer selects locked objects
Objects that are locked within a layer get selected when selecting everything in a layer. Instead of selecting everything in the layer except the locked items.

This is happening with text, and a basic rectangle also. The object should be locked and/or not visible, yet when the layer is selected, all objects including the locked and hidden objects become selected and move when they should not.

doesn't have to be a compound path - it happens with a simple square, too.
Amazing, you are right. The object have to be compound path though, just checked.
