After the build, I create a tar-ball (a sort of binary package from 'make 
install') and install this (unpack it) so that

$ ls -lrt /c/LocalApps/Emacs/
totale 8
drwxr-xr-x 1 ... lib
drwxr-xr-x 1 ... share
drwxr-xr-x 1 ... include
drwxr-xr-x 1 ... libexec
drwxr-xr-x 1 ... bin

No, a copy/paste mistake...

BTW, in bisecting I have found that commit  

73ba6f16d1fe95d7535c8e20f19d11275b8356c4 (2018-11-12 09:38:27)   OK

works as expected (both without init file/folder and with my init file)

while commit

644a308b4e1513e04be9360e1586e14b32ec0159 (2018-11-16 08:30:20)  NOT OK

has the issues described in this thread.. There is still some work to do...
