Mountain Biking - Loose Chain While Coasting

I just got my new Iron Horse Maverick and I absolutely love it, my only complaint is that when I coast the chain goes slack. This made it kind of tough when I needed to pick up some speed quickly and my first few strokes don't provide any power they only tighten the chain. How can I keep my chain from going slack when I coast? Also, could this be related to the fact that the cranks spin if I take my feet of while coasting?

Freehub is a bit stiff. New ones often are. Ride it a few weeks, should go away.
If it seems to be getting worse have the shop regrease it.
