Hmm, it looks like the new paths rather clutter the testsuite summary
produced at the end of the run,

   /tmp/ghctest/jvZ6KB/1/2/3/./indexed-types/should_fail/T3330a  T3330a [stderr mismatch] (normal)
   /tmp/ghctest/jvZ6KB/1/2/3/./indexed-types/should_fail/T4174   T4174 [stderr mismatch] (normal)
   /tmp/ghctest/jvZ6KB/1/2/3/./indexed-types/should_fail/T4179   T4179 [stderr mismatch] (normal)

Perhaps we should strip off the root path from the test names?
