Interactively rebase always aborting

I'm using SourceTree 1.5.2 for Windows and I'm having problems doing a interactively rebase with edit.

What I'm trying to do is to run the equivalent to:

git rebase --interactive 07b...

with "edit" in a single commit. If I understood correctly, checking the "Amend commit?" checkbox does exactly that, as explained here.

The problem is that, after I mark any commit to be edited, I get two messages:

The first one is the expected one, SourceTree is running rebase and stopping at the commit:

Stopped at 07b... My commit message

You can amend the commit now, with

	git commit --amend

Once you are satisfied with your changes, run

	git rebase --continue

Completed successfully.

But when I close this window, I instantaneously get a rebase --abort everytime.

git -c diff.mnemonicprefix=false -c core.quotepath=false rebase --abort
Completed successfully.

So my repository goes back to the initial state and I can't rebase editing. I couldn't find any solution so far, I ended up doing this by command line, but I'm wondering if I'm doing something wrong or if this is a bug.

I have tested this in many other repositories, even other machines, and I still get an abort everytime.
