Yes, we should fix this.

My own preference is to detect if the suite/test is running
in a real file system, and if so write it locally and
say 'printed somefile.pdf'  If running in a zip
or unable to write, we could use the temp dir but
should say so.

This would make core development and testing easier too.
Let's try to address it on the trunk code promptly.
