I've made a small patch to the test harness so that it tries to clean up
after itself (by chmod'ing any tmp directories).

Could you help the buildbots again by giving yourself write permissions
to this directory and removing it?

  /buildbot/workspace/karel solaris/build/tests-old-fashioned.dir/tmp_restrictive

  /home/darcslav/darcslav_dir/zooko nooxie/build/tests-old-fashioned.dir/tmp_restrictive

Thanks! (hopefully this means the build slaves will be working again,
although the tests will still fail)
