this is now significantly improved on master: on an incremental "make
check" now only about 5 temp files / directories are leaked, none of
which are from a CppunitTest; there are also various leaked
ooopackaging* directories from the installer.

and it was not just trivial missing close() in unit tests that caused
the leakage; there were some real problems where temp files would leak
document content for end users too, including one of the oldest
regressions ever, introduced when converting tools DirEntry to
osl::Directory on 2000-10-12 in commit f198ed89a
