It seems like our test harness is disambiguating more than it needs to for parallel testing.

In Lib/test/, we do this--

# Define a writable temp dir that will be used as cwd while running
# the tests. The name of the dir includes the pid to allow parallel
# testing (see the -j option).
TESTCWD = 'test_python_{}'.format(os.getpid())
with support.temp_cwd(TESTCWD, quiet=True):

And then in Lib/test/, we are doing this--

# Disambiguate TESTFN for parallel testing, while letting it remain a valid
# module name.
TESTFN = "{}_{}_tmp".format(TESTFN, os.getpid())

with uses like--

with open(TESTFN, "wb") as f:
    # Do stuff with f.

It seems like only one of these measures should be necessary (a single working directory for all parallel tests using a disambiguated TESTFN, or one working directory for each process with a non-disambiguated TESTFN).
