Result: Spaces in the path to the workspace are deleted [..]

This is a problem (the spaces). See #q124906 fi. Afaik, this has not been resolved (but I could be wrong).

My setup is kind of complicated: My workspace is in a OneDrive-synced folder (Win10 file system), which is then mounted using WSL to have a Linux environment for ROS development.

This is also not a typical setup and especially the "onedrive synced" part is worrying me. What does that do to your file permissions? File permissions on all files need to be correct, or binaries won't run and all sorts of other problems can come up.

I would strongly recommend you try to get a baseline by replicating your setup on a regular Ubuntu installation (perhaps a VM).

If that works while you're following the same workflow, it's more than likely that either WSL and/or your OneDrive setup is interfering.
