    This is a known issue with nunit, for which there is a fix but it didn't make it into latest image update. We are working on incorporating that release into the images, but in the meantime you can create a script like this and call it in the install:​ stage of your build.

    Let us know if you have any questions.

    Fixed images have been deployed. The above workaround should no longer be necessary.
