another workaround I found was this: Since it is acting as a caligraphy stroke, instead of true erase function, simply use it as a coverup function. Click the fill area (just above the image in the upper right hand corner), set to Last Used Style (instead of This Tool's Style) and then use the fill at the bottom to select the right background color, which in my case is white. This might not work for other more complex images, but it works for simple black and white images.
