That's very puzzling. I've never met anything that loopsback when it is
off. It may be crosstalk in the cable. What happens when you pull the cable
out at the stamp end. If it eachos, it is definitely crosstalk. If it
doesn't then maybe the stamp needs some input pulldown/pullup resistors.
Don't assume that the stamp board is correctly designed.
