Error when attempting to do gvfs clone with BitBucket Server and GVFS plugin

I've installed BitBucket server trial on an AWS vm. The vm is inside our network and has full access to all resources required. I have followed all of the setup instructions for GVFS available on that GitHub ( I can do a normal git clone of this repo, so I'm fairly certain there is no issue with the actual repo, but I keep getting the same error when trying to do a gvfs clone command: 


C:\Repos\Test2>gvfs clone <my remote repo address> .
Clone parameters:
Repo URL: <my remote repo address>
Cache Server: Default
Destination: C:\Repos\Test2
Querying remote for config...Succeeded
Cannot clone @ C:\Repos\Test2: System.ArgumentNullException: Value cannot be null.

at GVFS.CommandLine.CloneVerb.Execute() in C:\Repos\GVFS\src\GVFS\GVFS\CommandLine\CloneVerb.cs:line 134


It appears to connect and authenticate just fine, but when it actually does the query for the clone operation it barfs. After debugging the local GVFS code (and based on the error above), the error seems to indicate that a null value is being referenced where it expects an enum, but it doesn't appear to be coming from the GVFS code. I think this may be originating from the BitBucket GVFS plugin. 

Any help you can provide to help me get this up and running before Friday (11/3/17) would be very much appreciated. I have a tight window on this POC for security reasons and must destroy my test vm by Friday. Maybe we can solve a bug with the current GVFS plugin and make it better for everyone else. =)  Or maybe I'm missing something silly.
