Cisco 4500 changes active supervisor every reboot

Every time I reboot my 4500 it swaps the active supervisor.

Is this normal behavior and why?

Does this prevent a bad supervisor from rebooting continually?

In my experience, the sup in the lower slot number comes up first and is active. But I've never done a bunch of reboots on a 4500 so this may be coincidental.

If a sup was bad, it wouldn't become the active sup so I don't think that's the reason.

We have two sups, one is Slot5 and the other in Slot6.

I have not rebooted for enough times to say for sure that the supervisors alternative active state every reboot but I know for sure that I have booted several time when the sup in Slot6 became the active sup.
