I have found a similar problem (in the test lang/closed.java, but I
think it applies to other tests as well). It turns out that the path
to the database created by a test (typically "wombat") cannot contain

public String PersistentServiceImpl::getCanonicalServiceName(String name)

looks for the first occurence of ':' in name, and assumes that what
follows is equal to the protocol:

        public String getCanonicalServiceName(String name)
                String protocolLeadIn = getType() + ":";
        int colon = name.indexOf( ':');
        if( colon > 1) // Subsubprotocols must be at least 2 characters long
            if( ! name.startsWith( protocolLeadIn))
                return null; // It is not our database
            name = name.substring( colon + 1);

For those who wonder why I insist on having ':' in the path, the answer
is that I don't. I did, however, use the UNIX command 'date' to get a unique
directory name for each test run. 

I have now changed the argument to date, so that I get a time stamp
without ':', and that seems to work.
