VM showing it is associated with 2 datastore's,

I have a single VM with only one hard drive.  It does not have any snapshots.  When I look at the summary, it shows it is attached to two different datastores.  If I browse the datastores, one does have a folder for the VM the other does not have any folder for the VM.  Why is it showing an association with 2 datastores, when there is only one?

To show two datastores the VM, must be using two datastores for files.

1. either the virtual machine disk and configuration information on different datastores.
2. swap file on a different datastore.
3. snapshot on a different datastore.
4. CDROM ISO or Floppy Iimage on different datastores.
5. BUG (I've have seen a VM with two datastores for no reason!)
