There was a change which causes the symlink test suite to fail on OSX.

The problem is caused by:

  • tempfile.mkdtemp returns a path under /var/folders
  • By default on OSX /var is a symlink to /private/var
  • As a result, os.path.realpath(TEMP_SITE_ROOT) != TEMP_SITE_ROOT and the expected paths don't match here

I'm running OSX 10.13.16.
