#507 rework Tk 8.1 winDialog test to keep it from hanging the test suite

obsolete: 8.1

The following test in tk8.1/tests/winDialog.test is currently skipped
because otherwise it hangs the test suite by causing a message dialog
to pop up, requiring a user to click OK to continue. Note that this
test cannot be run by itself--it needs to be run inside the file...

set a aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa
append a $a
append a $a
append a $a
append a $a
test winDialog-5.16 {GetFileName: initial file: long name} {knownBug} {
start {set x [tk_getSaveFile -initialfile $a -title Long]}
then {
Click 1
set x
} [string range [file join [pwd] $a] 0 257]

This test wasn't being called for a while, but it also doesn't
hang (nor is it a bug) for 8.3.1.
