Loose front of 18-55 lens

Just got my Digital Rebel. The front of the 18-55 lens is loose enough to actually wobble, and you can see the wobble in the viewfinder.

So it's not just loose play in the focusing. The front lens element(s) are actually wobbling, not just rotating about the central lens axis.

Is this normal?
