Thanks, this seems to date back all the way to my f423ef5 (tests: allow
user to specify trash directory location, 2009-08-09), although I think
at that time it was not even possible to run the tests from any other
directory. So I am happy to blame Thomas's later patches for violating
my assumptions. :)

It probably makes sense to do the patch below on top, so that the error
doesn't happen again (I'd just as soon have it squashed into your patch,
since then then the motivation is even more obvious).

Subject: [PATCH] t/test-lib.sh: drop "$test" variable

The $test variable is used as an interim buffer for
constructing $TRASH_DIRECTORY, and is almost compatible with
it (the exception being that $test has not been converted to
an absolute path). Let's get rid of it entirely so that
later code does not accidentally use it, thinking the two
are interchangeable.
