You might be thinking `test.src` which is the path to the test source. 
These properties are always easy to get mixed up but there is a good 
table in the jtreg tag language spec [1].  In any case, I don't think 
jtreg sets test.dir (at least I can't see it) but it's useful to set on 
the command-line when running the tests outside of the test harness, I 
think that is what Brian is doing here.
