Of the previous __map__? My suggestion was to store the __name__ of the
previous SMC itself, assuming they have an unique _BasicName_. If the
latter is not the case then store their _PieceId_ but careful that won't
work if they came from the same game piece palette slot. In that case
you gotta make sure they get an unique id (use a Dynamic Property called
ID or something) when drawn from the palette (use a global property to
keep track of all SMCs drawn). Moreover, you should also store the
__direction__ (increase or decrease) requested by the previous SMC.

Do you mean you are sure it's the GCK itself misteriously duplicating
himself while the trigger invoked to run it is only firing once? If so,
I don't know how to fix this.
