Maybe related to this?

[8-digit-filename].tmp file is created on network share when saving Office 
files in Windows 7 Folder Redirection

Microsoft has at least 4 hotfixes related to the issue, which must be 
applied in a certain sequence:


Read "An enterprise hotfix rollup is available for Windows 7 SP1 and 
Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1"

It appears to have some implications with your problem.

I am using Redirected Folders without Roaming Profiles and I found that 
making the AUTOSAVE path local seemed to improve the stability of Word 
2007. Before that, I had a few occurences of users' files simply 
disapearing into thin air.
