Anyone experienced anything like this?
The behavior seems consistent but unexpected.
python 3.6 on both windows (10) and linux (ubuntu 18.04) seem to exhibit the same odd behavior.
something about a docker-image looking string seems to trigger this behavior. The behavior seems as expected for other strings.
Python 3.6.5 |Anaconda, Inc.| (default, Mar 29 2018, 13:32:41) [MSC v.1900 64 bit (AMD64)] on win32 Type "help", "copyright", "credits" or "license" for more information.

Help on built-in function lstrip:
lstrip(chars=None, /) method of builtins.str instance Return a copy of the string with leading whitespace removed.
If chars is given and not None, remove characters in chars instead.
This does NOT remove a leading substring. It removes a set of characters.
