People, if you really want this bug be fixed you should massively ask about progress here: Microsoft/BashOnWindows#111
It seems Visual Studio Code will use
winpty as workaround.
Microsoft has not planned to fix this bug because too few people has complained and some applications wrote workaround.
If you want Microsoft developers change their mind, show them you care about this bug!
I don't know if workarounds are 100% functional...
