Ah, it was me that did the bad reading, sorry.

Counter protects against counter wraps. Not against randomly 
resetting counters. Counter is alright, but you need to do 
something yourself against counter resets yourself.

I think your problem is that you expect 4 to come out when you
put in a difference of 4. But what comes out is 4/step.

You can use a cdef to multiply by the step again before plotting.
