Just something to note as a bug. If you have a prerecorded action, that locks pixels, transparent or otherwise, and a smart object is selected. It will lock those pixels without error, however the layer panel does not allow you to unlock, and if you try to edit the SO, it comes up with an error message. The work around for this is to drag the lock to the trash which still works, however this should be proved impossible.

Does the forward slash key / work to unlock?
