I can't debug shell scripts

I have the plugin Shell Scripts installed which supposedly gives me the ability to debug a shell script. I tried this recently and couldn't get it to work. Under Run/Debug configurations I created a new Shell Script configuration and entered the path to my script. I also entered the path to my Bash interpreter (Git Bash), at C:\Program Files\Git\bin\bash.exe. However, when I tried to debug the script I got the error message "Debug: there are no runners for Shell Script". I don't know what this means. Also, I noticed that I can't set breakpoints in my Bash script.

Debugging is not yet supported by the Shell Script plugin at the moment.

On Windows, however, you can't even run a script because the interpreter won't be able to understand Windows-like paths.

If you feel like we should have both supported, please submit them to the IDEA's issue tracker using this link.
