Are you using the technique Eric described, i.e. pointing the count to a 
separate PV which reads NORD?  I could see that causing the double-plot 
behavior if MEDM gets a count monitor event before the new array data arrives. 
Since MEDM is single-threaded it may not be possible to interrupt a plot once 
it starts, unless you want to be able to insert some kind of settling delay 
before it actually starts the plot.

That's another reason to make the widget able to use the new dynamic array 
sizing feature, since the array data and its size will arrive in the same 
monitor event.
