Default '09 civic transmission problem???

Brand new '09 civic LX. Automatic transmission. Driving on highway in rush hour traffic at approx 25 to 30mph and about 1500rpm when suddenly the traffic breaks. I step on the gas to speed up (I dont floor it) and the car revs to over 7000 rpm before shifting into lower gear. How is this possible with an automatic transmission and especially when the car has "drive by wire throttle system" meaning no mechanical linkage from gas pedal. Its 100% electronic. Seems like the computer should prevent an RPM redline.
