owncloud-client needs rw home

in the newest version of owncloud-client (oCC) I activated the tests, that are 
shipped with oCC. With my local pbuilder everything went fine (for amd64 and 
i386) but with sbuild at the buildd, the tests break [1]

The test, that break, wants to create an autostart file. And uses the standard 
path: ~/.config/autostart/ to add there a file, but this is not allowed within 
running the tests and breaks with: "Could not create autostart directory"

$cat debian/tests/control
Tests: make-tests
Restrictions: build-needed
$cat debian/tests/make-tests
#! /bin/sh
make tests

Complete source see git repo [2]

The rescriction that sounds a little bit like this "rw-build-tree" [3], will 
not help 'cause the test want to create a file at the home dir and not at the 
homedir. It would also help if you can point me to the correct doc.
