Stash issues with GitFlow / branch merging issues


I'm using GitFlow with Stash, and I'm having problems. To reproduce:

1) Create a new repository. It will have one branch - master. Make initial commit to master.

2) Create develop branch from master by selecting "Create new branch from here". Make two commits to develop branch.

3) Create release branch from develop. Make one commit to release branch.

4) Create pull request release -> master. Merge.

At this point, branch diagram looks like this:


This is the first problem - shouldn't the lines be connected at the top: release/1 -> master?

Then continuing:

5) Create pull request release -> develop. Merge.

6) Delete release branch.

7) Create hotfix branch from master. Make a commit to hotfix branch.

At this point , branch diagram looks like this:

gitflow2.gifNow second problem: if I compare hotfix branch to develop, diff shows not only the additional changes since commit 9bf8f5ff8f9, but everything since the initial commit when the lines in the diagram had a shared point f5df930aef2.

Third and the most severe problem: if I create a pull request hotfix -> develop, I get conflicts for every change that was made in the hotfix branch.

I presume this is not how Stash is supposed to behave? Can anyone tell me how to solve this?
