After applying this hunk, TMPDIR variable is no longer exposed to test 
scripts, even when adt-run is run as root.

(Setting TMPDIR was a mistake in the first place IMHO. This variable in 
POSIX has completely different semantics. Running a scripts that relied 
on the feature outside adt-run might lead to security holes.)
