Docker containers cannot mount a path containing blank characters

When trying to mount a path containing a blank character Docker returns a 255 exit status. For example:

mkdir 'hello world'
cd 'hello world'
docker run  -v "$PWD":"$PWD" busybox env

Docker team is reporting that is an issue related to the LXC runtime used by Circle-CI. See here for details.

How to use the Docker native container engine instead?

Since we are running an unprivileged LXC container it is not possible to use the upstream Docker container.

The only thing you can do for now is not include blank characters in your path.
