`circleci local execute` checkout step is insanely slow


#1

Here’s my config.yml:

version: 2

jobs:
  noop:
    docker:
      - image: ubuntu:18.04
    steps:
      - checkout

workflows:
  version: 2
  poop:
    jobs:
      - noop

And here’s what happens when I try to run it with circleci local execute:

$ time circleci local execute --job noop

What the heck is taking 8 minutes!?? I’m on macOS 10.14 with Docker version 18.09.0, build 4d60db4,
