No, this is the same symptom described in comment 14.  This is a result of a
difference between Windows and Linux:  in Windows, you need no special
privilege to send ICMP echos, while in Linux you do.  We can't "fix" it at
runtime.  I believe the current recommended approach is to use something like
xattrs in your filesystem to allow an executable to have CAP_ICMP, but I
haven't tried.
