Sorry, i hadn't considered this possibility. It definitely does need fixed

I don't really like the idea of hard-coding the MODULE_PATH for one specific
test file; that feels brittle and weird. And we can't do it for the whole test
harness, because then if someone tried to cd into a temp directory or
something in a test it'd randomly break.

The only other workable alternative i can think of right now is to just make
P* files skip when they detect that they can't traverse to the test directory.

Not sure which is preferable. Maybe someone else has a better idea :/
