Summary 08718: kicknrun, kicknrunu: Auto-incrementing coin counters on boot
Description When running a game, the coin counter numbers in the machine's cfg file will increase by 1 on each start up even though credits are not being added by the user.
Steps To Reproduce 1. Run any of the affected games.
2. Let the game run for a little bit, just don't add any credits.
3. TAB to the Bookkeeping Info and view it, should see coins added to the counters already.
4. Press Shift+F3 for a full reset, and view the counters in the Bookkeeping Info again and see more coins added.
Additional Information Example kicknrunu.cfg after 2 runs, no credits added:
<?xml version="1.0"?>

            <coins index="1" number="2" />

For me, the problem only occurs when Shift+F3 is pressed. F3 by itself has no effect on the counters.

The problem also occurs when starting the game in the normal way.

Bad copy/paste, fixed steps to reproduce. Yeah it's just on a first run/full resets.

Turns out they weren't coin counters
