Jenkins on Docker (LTS) running locally cannot build Pipelines from local repos

      The LTS release of Jenkins on Docker (installed on a user's local computer) looks like it can no longer build Pipelines from locally cloned repos.

      We have hundreds of readers following the Tutorials in the Jenkins User Documentation like this one. (I.e. Over 900 people have forked the repo that this tutorial uses since about September/October last year.)

      Up until a couple of weeks ago (afaik) and at least since mid-December 2017 when I last tested one of these tutorials, these Tutorials were working fine.

      However, either a recent change in Jenkins or Docker seems to have stopped Jenkins from successfully building Pipelines from locally cloned repos.

      Here's an example of the output I received from following the Build a Java app with Maven tutorial up to the first 'Build' stage, based on my environment (above):

      Other Jenkins users who've been following the tutorials in the Jenkins User Documentation have reported similar buggy behavior (see rows 44 and 45 of the documentation feedback form), one of which appears to indicate that this issue is also a problem with Docker on Windows.

      This buggy behavior even prevents the ability to successfully run a Pipeline from a local Git repo in Blue Ocean.

      I've attached links to the relevant Jenkins User Google Group post and GitHub repo issue, which a user who identified this issue (early on) had raised.
