Hair cache problem

I have made a tree branch. Basically a number of joint chains which use a dynamic hair curve (cgTkDynamicChain). I can cache the hair systems in this file and the cache files end up in the data file of the project directory on the server. Everything works fine in this file. Now then, if I reference the PRE-cached file into another scene, multiple times, and then try to cache the hair systems I get error messages and Maya tries to write the cache files to the local drive instead of the project file on the server. A cache node is made for each hair system but the hair curves still remain dynamic and the caches are not being read. (Presumably because they are outside of the directory).

Does anyone know why this is happening?
I think it was Francis Bacon that said there is 'no such thing as an original thought.' But I suspect he was quoting someone else.
