If it is coming from the tub spout then the gasket is moving around or esle it is shot. The easiest way to fix this is to get a new tub spout. It will more than likely take more time to attempt to change the gasket on the spout then to install a new one.

Should a brand new high arch kitchen faucet drain the spout after the tap is turned off?

I just installed an American Standard kitchen faucet and it continues to run for a second or two after turning the handle. I called AS and they said it is because of the high arch and the location of the stop valve lower in the fixture. I think it may have more to do with this being a lower end kitchen faucet. During a bathroom remodel we installed a high arch Pegasus bathroom faucet and, while it is admittedly not at high as the kitchen faucet, it stop immediately and doesn't continue to run/drop at all. When I removed the Pegasus faucet filter at the spout, it behaves just like the kitchen faucet, so there's some sort of stop valve element at the spout of the Pegasus that isn't part of the AS faucet.
