source-directory is where Emacs was built.  And since you didn't build
it yourself, this reflects the directory where whoever built it did
that.

And since Cygwin passes to Emacs a file name without a drive letter,
the logic in autoload.el causes the D: drive letter be added to
/home/epich/sw/cedet/lisp/cedet, because it doesn't expect a
semi-absolute file name like that, it expects either a relative file
name or a fully-qualified absolute one.

So this is a direct result of launching a native w32 Emacs from a
Cygwin Bash.
