I'm not sure if this is a bug. I think it might be by design...

Yes, this is definitely a bug since users can bypass the lockscreen. 
The expected result is correct, the home button should have no effect on the lockscreen. If the user does swipe to see the passcode, cancel should return to the lockscreen.
