Definitely not an Emacs problem.

How, then, do you explain that Emacs 24.3, both installed with WSL
package manager (apt) and rebuilding it from source (see also this
thread [1]), work just fine?

It doesn't seem to be the case, as at least one of the participants in
the discussion of that issue said the problem happened in Emacs 24 as

And even if some change in Emacs exposed that bug, it doesn't yet mean
the bug is in Emacs.

Correct, this is reproducible (for me) on both emacs24 and emacs26. I did not 
try emacs25.
Have you tried emacs-24.3? Current WSL install 24.5 which fails with the packages manager. Being emacs25 > emacs24.3 it fails too...

My experience is that Emacs > 24.3 fails (24.5, 25.x 26.x)

You can build it yourself:

wget http://git.savannah.gnu.org/cgit/emacs.git/snapshot/emacs-emacs-24.3.tar.gz

tar -xf emacs-emacs-24.3.tar.gz

cd emacs-emacs-24.3
./configure --prefix=/home/emacs24.3 --with-x=no [--with-LIB=no]
make install

See if it background itself... with the packages manager..
