I looked into this and the problem actually lies with the git install. If you setup the newer git versions (probably 2 and later) you have the option of using a terminal emulator or the windows default console window backend. The terminal emulator is the default option and it has issues with Python (amongst other things) which rbtools depends on. If you switch to the windows default console window on a reinstall the issue will be gone.

Unfortunatly i dont see how the RB team can fix this other then updating to python 3.4.3 which seems to work on git bash.
