After shutting down, engine and prop continue to windmill for a few seconds. Is this a problem?

This is from Steve Ells:
"...the engine/prop combo is going to continue to rotate for a few seconds; there’s nothing except the compression stroke of the cylinders to stop the rotating mass (crankshaft, prop and other parts) after the fuel has been cut off."
-Steve
If there are other symptoms of a problem, please let us know and we can research further.
