Cfdump for input type of file gives unusual result in ColdFusion 8

Whenever I do a cfdump of a input type of file it gives an unexpted result regardless of the file that is browse and seleted.

For examle, even if I browse for a file for a file C:/Test.txt
The cfdump for that field shows:

It always returns a similar result even if the file is remote.  The only thing changing being the name of the file at the end.  

Can anyone throw some light on this?

    Is it that a copy of the browsed file is made here? But if so why cant I seem to be able to go the folder and just see the file?

    that is expected behaviour ...the neotmp file is just that, a temp file to which cf is storing the upload

    Can the neotmp files be deleted?  Does the CF services need to be stoped?
