Re: Git for Windows v2.20.0-rc0

Just a quick note:

I installed v2.20.0-rc0 with these options:

$ cat /etc/install-options.txt
Editor Option: VIM
Custom Editor Path:
Path Option: Cmd
SSH Option: OpenSSH
CURL Option: OpenSSL
CRLF Option: CRLFCommitAsIs
Bash Terminal Option: MinTTY
Performance Tweaks FSCache: Enabled
Use Credential Manager: Enabled
Enable Symlinks: Disabled
Enable Builtin Rebase: Enabled
Enable Builtin Stash: Enabled

When starting the git bash two windows pop up instead of one.
One that's "empty" and the other one containing the real git bash.
