Git Bash 2.5 cannot connect to mysql

I’m having a really annoying problem to connect to MySQL by Git Bash 2.5 (via Windows on localhost).
Everything works fine trough CMD and Mysysgit.

$ mysql -u root -proot

    the solution is provided here:

    use this winpty before any window command and it works.

    winpty mysql -u root -proot

    The issue 242 point out:

    this is a known problem (see git-for-windows/build-extra/installer):

    Some console programs interact correctly with MinTTY only when called through winpty (e.g. the Python console needs to be started as winpty python instead of just python).

    If you do not like that, feel free to choose the installer option not to use MinTTY.

    Please note also that Git for Windows is not your “Linux on Windows”. It really is supporting Git on Windows and not necessarily mysql.

    Using mysql in a docker container (like nkratzke/EasyMySQL) would be easier and provide a more manageable Linux environment.
