What you describe is called bud proliferation or double-budding. It isn't classified as a disease but it is caused by a hormonal imbalance in the plant, often due to the genetic makeup of the hybrid, and triggered by environmental conditions. There's nothing you can do to stop the process, other than to prune off the affected stem.
