Backpedal = chain jumps cogs?

Hey, I had a bike in the workstand and noticed that when it is in any gear, once you backpedal the chain tends to jump to the next cog...

Is this normal? What would cause this? The bike has friction shifters, and I tried many times just trimming one way or another and still -- backpedal and the chain wants to jump.

Is this normal? I've never tried to backpedal my other bike to see if it does it too.
