Both test_journal and test_logfile use tempfile.mktemp(), which creates new
directories in /tmp. Neither one removed the generated files (test_logfile
had code to do it, but it was commented out). pyramid had nearly a thousand
spurious /tmp/@1234.5 directories, all owned by me because the buildbot was
creating another dozen or so each time the test suite got run.

Those two tests could probably be modified to create temp file in the current
directory, but that change seemed like it had a higher probability of


PS: folks who have run tests on pyramid, please check /tmp/ (and /tmp in the
sid-chroot) for leftover @1234.5 directories and delete them. You'll have to
do a 'chmod a+rwx' on them first because of a bug in the old cleanup code
(chmod(777) instead of chmod(0777)).
