We use SourceTree on several machines, and we've noticed all of them have started losing lots of disk space, tens of GB in some cases, to hundreds of 'bbchunkdl' files (e.g. 'bbchunkdl214143915' or similar) in the <User>\AppData\Local\Temp directory.
We have not been able to trace the file creation handles to a specific process, but we've noticed that their creation times seem to correlate with SourceTree Pull/Clone operations, and we've seen them created in the directory at the moment of a SourceTree Pull.

These files don't seem to be used after a Pull/Clone, so they seem to be safe to delete. Is anybody else seeing this issue?
