wipers

I would say that this is normal "behavior," as I have been on the receiving end of this phenomenon on several occasions by MB's and other makes.

With a single blade, the wiper has to cover the entire windshield, so it has to go faster. In a two wiper set up, the driver's wiper would clean the glass two times, forward and backward, whereas the single wiper only gets every other pass. The extra speed accounts for the flinging action you have observed.

Happy Motoring
