No, I have another test cast to propose.

Build Emacs from master and install it in a different directory from the build 
one. Now remove the build folder or simply rename it. (As a normal user uses 

Remove the .emacs.d folder, which for Windows build is located in 
AppData/Roaming (or rename it), i.e. start Emacs without any initialization 

Now start Emacs [*] and try to install an ELPA packages. After Options - Manage 
Emacs Packages, the minibuffer in Package buffer shows:

"error in process filter: Setting current directory: Permission denied, 

where c:/msys64/tmp/emacs-master is the build tree of Emacs. Package buffer 
shows only built-in packages and Buffer menu contains also a *Compile-Log* 
buffer with the text 

Compiling no file at Thu Dec  6 09:46:33 2018

Now, just create an empty build tree folder:

mkdir -p /tmp/emacs-master/src

All work as expected and after Options - Manage Emacs Packages, the Package 
buffer shows also ELPA Packages without error in minibuffer. For example, I 
installed in this way the auctex package....

As you see, no sr-speedbar is used at all.

[*] For example, in W10 from a link on the task bar whose target is 
C:\LocalAps\Emacs\bin\runemacs.exe in my case.
