Modifying local files while pre-tested private build is running

Using Eclipse (Indigo/3.7) with the Perforce P4 and TC plugins.
I submit a Remote Run using the "pre-tested" commit option; builds take a long time (up to an hour). In many cases I'd like to continue working on the code base while waiting for that private build to finish (and hopefully do its auto-commit). But it's not clear what will happen if I modify some files that were part of the pre-tested commit build. Is it safe to do that, or will the post-build-success commit pick up whatever changes are in my local workspace? I'm hoping the answer is that TC uses whatever files were sent from my local to the TC server to do the build, so that local changes while the build is running won't affect the pre-tested commit.
