I haven’t experience this bug (and see "package-source-derivation, file"
in tests/packages.scm).  However, I’m happy to say that since commit
da675305ddf2ba574e309e515d18ae1f778297be, it is possible to use a
‘local-file’ there:

    ;; …
    (source (local-file "foo/bar" #:recursive? #t)))

See ‘current-guix’ in (gnu packages package-management) for an example.
