Commit failed with error: Creation of commit message file failed

Hello,

When doing a git commit from within PhpStorm, I get the error:
Commit failed with error:
Creation of commit message file failed

The entire git directory is owned by me and a manual git commit from the command line works fine.
At work (this problem occurs at home) I don't have this problem with the same PhpStorm version and OS.

PhpStorm version: 8.0.1
OS: Xubuntu 12.04

A google search doesn't give any usable info (I don't read chinese), neither does a search here on in the knowledgebase.

Any help would be appreciated.

Regards,

Martijn

please can you attach your idea.log?

The problem seems to have resolved itself without any action on my part (apart from closing PhpStorm, shutting down my computer and restarting and reopening today).

It might have been caused by me deleting the .git directory, temporary moving .idea out of the project directory, making a new git clone and moving the .idea directory back in. In idea.log I saw:
