No. The only reason you came to this conclusion is because it "looks" like
this is what is happening.
C:\>net use q: \\ip\c$ bob /user:bob
Then if you go an connect to q:\winnt\profiles\administrator\temporary
internet files then yes you will get a listing of your local machines temp
files and not the remote machines BUT those files are not stored on the
remote machine, in fact Windows NT is actually redirecting your temp
internet files request back to your local machine. So while it might look
like the files have been transferred to the remote machine. They have not
been. Load up filemon (sysinternals.com).

That's because the cache doesn't get transferred. Well at least from what I
have seen, I could be completely wrong.
