[Libguestfs] [PATCH libguestfs] tests: increase likelihood that heap abuse triggers failure



This takes advantage of glibc's MALLOC_PERTURB_.
If you develop on glibc-based systems and don't yet set this via your
shell's init scripts, add something like this to e.g., .bashrc:

    export MALLOC_PERTURB_=$(($RANDOM % 255 + 1))

This change ensures that it's enabled for anyone running "make check"
and in particular for koji.

There's probably documentation somewhere, but I don't know where
off hand, so this will have to do:
