  • Fixed a bug where network cleanup was nonfunctional for containers which used a custom user namespace and were initialized via API (#14465).
  • Fixed a bug where some options (including volumes) for containers that joined pods were overwritten by the infra container (#14454).
  • Fixed a bug where the --file-locks option to podman container restore was ignored, such that file locks checkpointed by podman container checkpoint --file-locks were not restored.
  • Fixed a bug where signals sent to a Podman attach session with --sig-proxy enabled at the exact moment the container that was attached to exited could cause error messages to be printed.
  • Fixed a bug where running the podman machine start command more than once (simultaneously) on the same machine would cause errors.
