Process isolation does not allow port publishing with docker run...?

I try to use Docker Desktop 3.0.0 with Windows Containers and --isolation=process on Win10. It seems to me that the --publish does not work in that mode.
To test that, I created a small image with a service process that listens on port 8083, and returns a string with current time when connecting to that port (e.g. with curl)

Running in hyperv everything works fine:
docker run -d --publish 8083:8083 --isolation=hyperv e0e26f7f162d

I can do curl localhost:8083 on the host system and all works fine.

But with
docker run -d --publish 8083:8083 --isolation=process e0e26f7f162d
the container starts without errors, but the curl connect from the host times out. In fact, when I start a shell in the container and connect to localhost:8083 I get a response, so the service itself is running. Just the publishing (or forwarding) of the port to the host Windows system does not work.

Any idea what is missing?

I have the exact same problem. Is there any progress on that topic?

Kind regards,

Unfortunately, no. Sorry…
