Thank you reporting this issue.

>From a cursory look, it seems sed is able to create
a temporary file in a read-only directory, and thus
it doesn't fail as expected (your log shows the expected
message of "can't create temp file" was missing).

To help us better diagnose the issue, can you
re-run the test with the following command and
send the resulting log file:

  make check TESTS=testsuite/panic-tests.sh VERBOSE=yes SUBDIRS=.

Also, can you try the following commands in the same directory
as 'sed', as a sanity check?

  mkdir aaa
  chmod a-w aaa
  touch aaa/bbb

The 'touch' command should fail with "permission denied"
(this is esentially the sed test that fails).
