Fixed thusly.  I didn't see the crash in my original testing.

Subject: [PATCH] test-skeleton: Support temporary files without memory leaks
 [BZ#18333]
To: libc-alpha@sourceware.org

add_temp_file now makes a copy which is freed by delete_temp_files.
Callers to create_temp_file can now free the returned file name to
avoid the memory leak.  These changes do not affect the leak behavior
of existing code.

Also address a NULL pointer derefence in tzset after a memoru allocation
failure, found during testing.
