Dogtail creates and uses the directory /tmp/dogtail (it's configurable but only
by root editing a file in /usr) for its scratch files.
It should be possible to override that directory, in the case of frysk's test
framework, to be a directory within frysk's build tree.
Hmm, need a testcase for frysk-gtk/tests/ is that even possible?

Actually, you can change the directories that dogtail uses quite easily:
from dogtail.config import config
config.scratchDir = os.path.join(os.environ['HOME'], 'dogtail')
config.logDir = os.path.join(config.scratchDir, 'logs')
config.dataDir = os.path.join(config.scratchDir, 'data')
This will put everything in ~/dogtail/ . It also creates the directories.
I thought I had documented this, but it seems I neglected to. I just did,
though, in CVS.
