Bathtub faucet diverter

We have a clawfoot tub faucet in the style of the one pictured here:

Some water bypasses the diverter gate when it's pulled up in the shower mode and comes out the faucet itself. It's only a year or so old and has always done this. Is this fixable?

My limited assessment of the situation is that because it's not an in-wall style of faucet, it doesn't have a diverter valve that is leaking and can be replaced. It's a matter of the faucet style (and quality) and how much volume/water pressure there is. Am I correct in thinking it can't be fixed to a point where all water goes up to the shower and none goes past the gate out the faucet?

I have never seen seen a diverter of that style that completely sealed. They all drip or dribble at least a bit.
