Shaft seal

I've got a bronze shaft seal. It was leaking so I put in some grease. Now it leaks about 1 drop ever 2 or 3 seconds when the engine is in gear but none at all when the engine is shut down. I know these things are meant to leak a bit but is this rate normal? Also, grease the color of dirty-cream has extruded from the front of the seal. Does this just mean that I put in too much?

Can somebody give me an idea of what's normal for this thing?
