Who's Fetching?

I just clicked 'get info' on my external hard drive and under Sharing and Permissions it lists 'Eddy (Me)' and 'Fetching...' as both having Read and Write privilege. 'everyone' only has Read only. Curious about this 'Fetching...' character I 'got info' on my internal hard drive, the start up drive, and it lists only 'Fetching...' as having Read and Write privilege, I'm not listed while 'wheel' and 'everyone' have Read only privileges.

Is this normal? Is it because I'm currently adding stuff to both hard drives? Or is 'fetching...' some sort of trojan horse that's got control of my laptop? I've done a quick google search but can't find anything.
