One of the burp tasks created this:
cached_RR_in_Scene_6f715ac322e73dd0578b9fdf4a07396e.exr

I suspect it could have also been the cause of one of my computers getting computation errors (it has more restrictive fs permissions and is running BOINC as a service).

That is most certainly not supposed to happen. The recently added EXR cache feature which allows scenes to temporarily store some of the rendered data while rendering the rest (instead of keeping everything in memory at all times) was supposed to store the cache in the root of the slot directory structure created for that workunit - not the root of the file system which I guess is what you are saying happened on that system?
