Right. I have tried 

unset TEXMFCACHE
texexec hello.tex

in the command line and it just runs texexec (as expected).

But from TeXShop (using the engines for MKII and XeTeX described at 
http://wiki.contextgarden.net/ConTeXt_Minimals/Mac_Installation), for 
some reason mtxrun is run before texexec on the first compilation, which 
creates the cache in the location specified by texmfcnf.lua (unless I 
set TEXMFCACHE). And sourcing setuptex doesn't change anything. Maybe 
some other environment variable should be set in those engines?
