Frankly, I have not seen that error message before you reported it.
Yes, this case should have a better warning.

Switching just for running the tests to /tmp/somewhere could be done
with some effort. However, there is an easeier way:
This does a VPATH (out-of-source-tree) build in /tmp/$USER/gnupg-build
and thus the socket name should fit.
Actually I am always using VPATH builds because that allows to build for
different platforms and versions from the same source directory. My
usual directory layout is:
The last two are used to build the other branches (after the
corresponding git checkout in s/gnupg).
Die Gedanken sind frei. Ausnahmen regelt ein Bundesgesetz.
