Short description of error

bpy.ops.image.open() works in Blender's internal python console, but when executed from an external python script at load from a bash session, Blender closes, and Error: EXCEPTION_ACCESS_VIOLATION is printed to the bash console.

Exact steps for others to reproduce the error

Save this script or something like it to "test.py", including a valid path to a local image file:

import bpy

Then open Blender from a bash window (eg git bash), passing the python script with: ./blender.exe --python test.py

I Can repro with 2.79, but master seems fine, try a nightly build from https://builder.blender.org
