I'm pretty confident that I can work around this for the specific test
that was having trouble, but it seems like it'd be nice to have a way to
refer to the actual data and temp directories from psql and friends when
they're run under the TAP test system.

Ideally, there'd be a way to make it transparent, so we don't have to
write the tests to handle this case explicitly, though I'm not sure if
there's an easy way to do that.
