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.
