[PATCH] create and set temporary home directory

Subject: [PATCH] create and set temporary home directory

My first patch send to the list, not sure whether done properly.

In the master branch in test/emacs two tests access the build users home
directory, so does emacs_deliver_message in the crypto branch.

I think the tests should not touch the build user's home directory. The
patch creates a directory in the temporary test directory and sets home

In case of a non-existent home directory, the tests are failing without
this patch.
