Bug Description

xb_export.sh uses a hardcoded absolute path to create a temporary backup:


Today I ran into a problem when there was a directory with the same name left from another test run by someone else. It was a shared machine and I didn't have root access, so there was nothing I could do to fix that. I think we should never use absolute paths in the tests, all directories and files must be created in the test root directory ($topdir).
