Lana has taken over the gatekeeping duties for jdk7/tl and on her first 
integration hit a few test failures, one of which was 
test/java/nio/file/Path/ The test is using 
test.src (the source directory) instead of the current directory (the 
scratch directory in the case of jtreg). Our tests shouldn't of course 
write to the test source directory. The attached path fixes that.
