Bug: Python Console doesn't work with MSYS2

I wanted to file this bug with your bugtracker, but it doesn't seem to be working atm.
I'm trying out the python from MSYS2/mingw32 ( http://sourceforge.net/projects/msys2/ ) with pycharm. Running python from pycharm seems to work, however starting the console does not.

This is the output:
C:\msys2\mingw32\bin\python.exe -u C:\Program Files (x86)\JetBrains\PyCharm Community Edition 4.0\helpers\pydev\pydevconsole.py 53895 53896
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "C:\Program Files (x86)\JetBrains\PyCharm Community Edition 4.0\helpers\pydev\pydevconsole.py", line 1, in <module>
    from _pydev_imps._pydev_thread import start_new_thread
ImportError: No module named _pydev_imps._pydev_thread

Process finished with exit code 1
Couldn't connect to console process.

Running the command in bash works when I replace \ with /.
