Photoshop: Clone stamp & healing brush "stick" to the image and move it rather than fix it.

Win 7. CS5 Photoshop. Clone and healing brush tools grab the image and move it creating a duplicate image on top of the other one so I can't make either tool work. They used to work fine but started doing this and continue to make them unusable. Difficult to explain what happens but it sure seems like a bug since I have successfully used them many times in past. Thanks. TimburrH

Check the clone source panel, you turned on the previews and forgot about it.
