I've now done that, changed the tests accordingly, and verified they
are passing on Ubuntu Linux.

If anyone is aware of any POSIX-like operating systems that don't set
TMPDIR, TMP, TEMP, or TEMPDIR environmental variables naming the
temporary directory or don't supply a temporary directory named
"/tmp", please let us know the name of the temporary directory.

Other than that, I guess we just wait for tests to cycle.
