Can't start the git-bash in the terminal (Tools -> Terminal)

WebStorm 2016.2 EAP (WS-162.917) on Windows 7.

I use

    "C:\Program Files\Git\bin\bash.exe" --login -i

in Tools -> Terminal under "Shell path:". Running this command from the windows "Run command" dialog opens the shell just fine.

What happens when I open a terminal in WebStorm is... nothing. The terminal opens briefly and quickly shuts down again. There is no output and there is nothing in idea.log

Thanks, I voted on bot issues. I had l already tried that workaround (see above, with quotes already) and it doesn't work, same as the followup-comments there say. I'll wait.

I had the same problem on Intellij IDEA 2017.2.4 on OS X 10.12.6. It helped by pressing Cmd twice (Alt on windows). When the window-arrangement strips show up, drag "Terminal" to a different side of the screen than it is currently on. Then try again and it works. You can drag it back to its original side and it'll work still.
