Move tmpdir for CI. #333.
For some reason, when $TMPDIR is set to `pwd`/tmp (i.e., in the build workspace), the gconfd-2 process started by Firefox during the Selenium-backed tests stops responding (causing the test to fail) and eventually eats all the memory on the machine (causing Jenkins to die). Using the system default TMPDIR (/tmp in our case) does not show this problem, but makes it so that builds share temporary files and so might interfere with each other. Moving $TMPDIR to a unique-per-build-params directory under $HOME resolves this issue.
