Photoshop CC 2014 issue - Clone Stamp creates "second floating image" over original.

I've selected a layer where i need to use the Clone Stamp tool. When i select the tool and and try to establish a source point, an identical image appears in the workspace and "floats" all over the underlying image. This second "ghost" image also reverts any previous adjustment layers i've created, (though not in the original document)
Selecting the Move Tool, gets rid of the "floating image", but as soon as I select the Clone stamp, things get psychedelic. Brush tool seems to work fine, but it is impossible to clone now. Any other tools causing a similar problem?

Sounds like you have unclipped Clone Overlay running. In the Clone Source panel re-enable clipped if you just want the overlay in the cursor, or disable Show Overlay to remove it altogether

Thanks Mike ... yep, that was it. IMC, albeit too easy to overlook.
