Cloaking for Bots

Good day,

1) Any difference between Google Organic Traffic Bot and the Adwords bot?

2) Can anyone confirm the following Scenario:

User with a google toolbar visits a cloaked Web-site.
User's Google Toolbar captures (stores) that web-site and compares it to the cloaked version of it.

Cloaked content is discovered - webmaster is now sad... :)

1) No. All of Google's bots "share cache".

2) It could be happening, although Google hasn't said they do it. I suspect they have something in place to do it should they want to.
