I took the liberty to fix the tests.
Basically I've adapted them to the new mock based cross file system approach (that doesn't depend on luck anymore :)).
I also had to add one more `os.path.realpath` because on some OS (like OS X) the tmp directory path already consists of symlinks.
I didn't touch the actual code.
Tested on OS X and Ubuntu Linux (Oneiric).
