New submission from Denes Vadasz:

I compiled Python 2.5.1 on SuSE 10 and ran "make test", which reported 
test_subprocess.py to fail on lines 537 and 579 with "permission 

After a short investigation it looks the problem is that in SuSE 10 the 
shell (bash) rejects to execute scripts residing in the /tmp directory 
even if the file permissions would allow that.

An easy way of fixing this could be to place the shell script 
statically in the same directory as test_subprocess.py instead of 
creating it on-the-fly in /tmp.
