Running clover within a bitbucket pipeline

I have a Gradle multi-project build that compiles Java and runs tests with code coverage using Clover. This runs fine on my local machine, either native or within the pipeline's Docker container, and used to run fine within our Bamboo server.

However since moving it to Pipelines I've been seeing a lot of failures within the build. My guess is that this is something related to the Docker environment or the resources it has.

Has anyone else run into issues with this?
