I think leaving the directory around in case of failures would be a pretty bare minimum. It's sometimes also useful to keep the remains if everything was apparently successfull, but it's far less important imo. To me it sounds like we shouldn't use a randomly generated temporary name, but rather a static mapping based on the test's path or such, to create the relevant temp directory. Before a start a test could then clean that up, that way the amount of remaining cruft would be bound by the number of tests.
