Subject: ->tmpdir on MSWin32 often returns the root-dir
Download (untitled) / with headers
text/plain 388b
The list of directories to try at https://metacpan.org/source/SMUELLER/PathTools-3.33/lib/File/Spec/Win32.pm#L73 is really short, which often results in \ being returned. Given that many tests do not properly cleanup after themselves, using ->tmpdir on MSWin32 is prone to filling up the root with random crap. We should be attempting more common cases like C:\Windows\Temp and the like.
