File based Session test fails for lack of /tmp directory on Windows Based System

When running the built in tests on a Windows based system you will get a consistent failure in the file store session test because the default /tmp directory is more than likely missing. A quick solution to the problem is to set SESSION_FILE_PATH to a directory that exists on your system. This should be modified to use the environments temp directory.

(In [6889]) Fixed #6082: file-based sessions now verify that SESSION_FILE_PATH is a valid storage location, and raise ImproperlyConfigured if not. Thanks, jags78.
