Please help the small update to the test case tools/jar/ChangeDir.java,
which might fail if the "dedicated" test directory /tmp/a exists and the
user does not have privilege to delete/clean it up.

The proposed change here is to use a random file name (from File.getTempFile())
for the top test directory (instead of the fixed /tmp/a), and really clean it up
after testing (the old test leaves /tmp/a and those temp files undeleted).
