"setup.py test" is being naughty


Hi all,


I wanted to contribute a simple patch, and as a good open source citizen I wanted to also contribute a test. So I git clone from GitHub, create a virtualenv and run "setup.py test". First experience is that my /etc/krb5.conf is overwritten, which means my account is locked out of all systems here at work. I recovered from that, only to find out that ~/.ssh/id_rsa and ~/.ssh/id_rsa.pub were also overwritten. Now I'm not very amused.


Did I miss something in CONTRIBUTING.md?
