Tests leaving behind large temporary files

Hi all,

Since the deployment of the new CI system we've been noticing that
disk usage on the FreeBSD and Windows builders is adversely impacted
upon by tests leaving significantly large files in the temporary file

Just today two of the FreeBSD Builders were knocked out by these files
being left behind. Cleanup of less than 100 files released over 170gb
of space.

These files follow the naming pattern of 'tmpbn760szs'.

Given that both FreeBSD and Windows are affected, the following
projects are the key suspects for these files:

- Frameworks
- KDevelop

Could someone please investigate, determine which test(s) are
responsible and fix those tests to cleanup after themselves?
