No, I confess that I haven't, Jonathan — XeTeX is the only engine I ever 
use, and has been for much of its existence.  But David C. has 
identified the feature as emanating from the "Kpath..." library, so it 
will indeed be common to all TeX Live engines at least, and perhaps 
others as well.  David also reports that it is possible to turn this 
undesirable feature off, something I shall investigate shortly.
