Thanks for checking. As I mentioned elsewhere in this thread, I propose
to go through and apply support.unlink where necessary. It won't make
things any worse and will hopefully improve in some areas.
For test_mailbox I've experimentally implemented a hybrid tempfile /
local directory solution. ie I've created a new file on each run, but
only within the python_<pid> folder which already exists. As long as the
directory cleans up there should be no leftovers. That's certainly
helped although my re-run harness has provoked at least one error.
