For anyone else simply looking for a Linux shell experience on Windows with WSL and was hoping to use ConEmu + WSL, I found an alternative solution that works well for me. I had given up on ConEmu due to this issue (sorry, @Maximus5 , but I do thank you for all of your work on this project.. I used it for a few years).
You may want to check out X410 in the Microsoft Store. It's usually $10 (and almost always "on sale"). You can use a native Linux terminal like Tilix or GNOME terminal with WSL. Just make sure to follow their tutorials on their website for setup (including running sudo commands as yourself, not as root). I'm not affiliated or anything - just another person looking for a Linux shell experience on Windows with WSL.
