Windows Subsystem for Linux

I wanted to do some testing with the Linux Agent, so I decided to use the Linux Subsystem on Windows, like this:


Linux subsystem for Windows


So I used Ubuntu, and installed the agent, which went smoothly. All looked good so far:


Agent installed on Linux on Windows

So far so good. However, when I run the agent, all I can get is a seg fault - even if I just try and print the help text:


Seg fault printing the help text

That should work, shouldn't it? I was surprised to get a seg fault when just trying to print the help text...  But it seems whatever I try to do with the agent, all I get is the same error. So the agent doesn't seem able to do anything when I run it this way.


I was wondering if anybody else has tried this? It would have been really useful to test the Linux agent, if I could get it to work like this... If anybody has any ideas, please let me know.
