...after reproducing it several times today I'm quite sure that the security code can be bypassed by accepting an incoming call. It's obvious that nobody wants to enter the security code before beeing able to pick up the phone but the phone should stay locked during and after the call for all other activities/tasks. Can you confirm this issue?

I have just tried to escape from the phone UI during or after the call. No success, it asks the code anyways. Any details?

I can't confirm this. Swiping from either side to minimize the app took me to the screen where I can enter security code. Lock screen has icon + text for the ongoing call, clicking it returns to the call. Notifications are as they should as well. Tried after ending the call, same result.

At least in a few quick tests, I'm not personally able to reproduce this. At the end of the call, I'm taken back to the lockscreen or security code screen.

If you (or anyone else) have a specific set of actions that bypass the security code, I'd suggest contacting care@jolla.com directly with the instructions to reproduce the problem, so a solution can be made before details are public.
