Post Leaking 747 Wingtip

After refuelling at a stop in the persian gulf we were taxing out to the runway. I was looking out at the starboard wingtip. There appeared to be a constant flow of liquid, I presume aviation fuel coming from the wingtip. Is it normal for 747's to dump fuel onto a taxiway or was this a potential diaster that failed to manifest itself?
