It seems to me that if you lost power in a curve, that the bike would tend to fall into the curve. I typically hold neutral throttle or slight acceleration when cornering hard and if I back off the throttle, the bike always wants to 'fall into' the corner. Applying the front brakes makes the bike want to 'stand up'. Your description sounds backwards from my experiences.
