I have the following problem: Whenever I open a Bitbucket folder within a repository with a README.md, I get "An error occured. Something went wrong while trying to serve your request. Try reloading the page." When I click on the filename "README.md", I get "403 Forbidden". Cloning works fine, including README.md. Does anyone know how to fix this strange issue?

Thank you for your help
