Description

So, I am doing a lot of 1D stuff for ATPESC. That means curve plots.
If I hit the 'play' button, VisIt rips through everything really fast (which is nice) but then loops around to frame zero and does everything again, and agian, and again, and again, and again, and agian, and again, and again, and agian, and again, and again, and agian, and again, and again, and agian, and again, and again, and agian, and again, and again, and agian, and again, and again, and agian, and again, and again (I think you get my point).

Hitting the stop button does NOT have immediate effect.

Over moderately slow net, it winds up queueing up a slew of screen updates and you need to wait forever for all that to drain out.

By changing defalt to not loop but just once, would fix most of this issue
