I do both. I shadow the files to the local system ("/<system-name>:") and
to a remote system ("/method:host:/dir"). For the latter, I mock-up a
remote temporary directory. This is not possible on MS Windows, because
I use "/bin/sh" as connection program to that virtual remote host,
instead of "ssh" or alike.

So you shall declare a usable remote directory via that environment
variable for the MS WIndows case. If you could give me a recipe how to
setup a mock-up method for MS Windows - the better! It has always beaten
me, that the tests do not run out of the box.

The same mechanism is used for filenotify-tests.el and tramp-tests.el.

Best regards, Michael.
