No. But...

The normal way to spray the front windshield is to pull the right wiper stalk towards you. Doing so not only sprays the windshield, but also turns on the wipers long enough to wipe the spray off. It should NOT turn on the rear wiper.

However, if you aren't aware of this, so you also turn the stalk to turn on the wipers at the same time as you're spraying, it's easy to turn the rear wiper on also, because they are both on the same stalk (the part you turn for the rear wiper is just a little bit closer to the base of the stalk than the part you turn for the regular wipers).

Hope that makes sense.

Are you by chance in reverse when this happens? If so, then yes it's normal.

See page 118 in your owner's manual

Rotate the switch
counterclockwise to spray the
window washer.
When you shift the transmission
to the reverse position with the
front windshield wipers activated,
the rear window wiper operates
automatically.
When the wiper control lever
position is INT, the rear wiper
operates intermittently.When it is
LO or HI, the rear wiper operates
continuously.
