Yea, it's a known issue:

http://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=311780

It's a pretty hard problem to solve though, and no one has put the
time in to tackle it.
In the mean time, if this is an issue for you, I would suggest using
Xvnc (from the vnc-server package) instead of vino.

It works by running an entirely different session, separate from the
logged in and locked session.
