This works correctly on a docker-machine run docker-daemon.

  • a reproducible case if this is a bug, Dockerfiles FTW

Simple Dockerfile:

FROM python:2.7.11
CMD echo "ohai"

Steps to reproduce the behavior

  1. Put the above Dockerfile in your cwd
  2. docker build .

Note that it seems to me that this is potentially some sort of inconsistency in the Docker daemon itself, and maybe not 100% related to Docker for Mac, but given that it works in normal Docker and I’m not sure how I’d go about fixing it, I figured I’d drop this here.
