mailman-3.0.0a5 fails bin/test on MacOSX

Bug #530952 reported by Richard Wackerbarth on 2010-03-02

GNU Mailman

Bug Description

The name of a tempfile is not unique on MacOSX.
/tmp/<RANDOM>/a_file is actually stored in /private/tmp/<RANDOM>/a_file because MacOSX has a symbolic link for /tmp

This causes test_configfile to fail because the faked root is presented as different values by os.path.abspath

A patch which creates to same canonical name within the test is provided.
