PyCharm External Diff Tools > Folder Compare doesn't seem to work

I'm trying to configure PyCharm's external diff tools to setup folder comparison with my favorite comparison tool. File diffs work great! But folder diffs continue to use PyCharm's built-in diff tools.

I've tried messing around with the parameter order, but it always uses PyCharm diff for directory comparisons, no matter what I set.

What's the secret to getting this to work?

External diff tools are not supported for dirs, jars, DBs. Could you please file a feature request for that?
