Well, This usually happens when using the Tilde (~) key.

enter image description here

It's a "Continuous Duplicates Based on Mouse Movement" function and combined with Alt/Option, Shift/Command and spacebar you can create new and complex effects.

Are you sure your Tilde key is not pressed or locked somehow? Also, try drawing a circle while holding the Tilde key pressed...

I'm asking cause I don't know of a setting in Illustrator that will do this automatically...
