Passware has enhanced Passware Kit Forensic to allow for memory acquisition of a seized computer over FireWire port, even if the computer is locked

Yup - given the way DRAM remnancy attacks work, once the FDE keys are in RAM they'll stay there until they're removed or there's no more power to the chips. It's the same sort of attack used against Bitlocker, and the same sorts of mitigations are likely to apply.
