Sourcetree: Authentication failed for Stash

I try to connect to our Stash with my Sourcetree, but it says the authentication failed. My username & password are correct though!

It says:

The following errors were encountered:

Authentication failed for Stash with username [my username] - please check your account settings.

Any ideas? Or is this a (known) bug?

Anyone coming across this thread, being on version 1.6.24 of SourceTree, this version also has a similar bug that was raised here: 

Went to 1.6.15 SourceTree beta hoping this Authenticate error would go away. It wants to authenticate every 10 minutes. Very annoying.



Still an issue for me, I'm on of SourceTree now. I'd understand if this was someone else's product, but Stash is their own product. You'd think the integration between their own products wouldn't be an issue.
