_deviceImage-0.iso mapped to multiple VMs

Currently running vSphere 5 and noticed that several of my Windows 2008 R2 VMs all had this ISO mapped when I looked at their configuration.  The file is 149MB and is present in the same directory as the .vmx file.

Anyone ever seen this before?  I have no idea how it got there.  This is the first time I have deployed version 5 but can come up with only one plausible explanation.  Is this some new functionality in the latest version related to vMotioning a VM with an attached ISO?

Would welcome a view as I googled this and could only find one result which came from this forum but doesn't reveal much http://communities.vmware.com/message/1812716
