SourceTree is a TrainWreck


I'm setting up SourceTree on a new computer. It shows the bitbucket login, but then doesn't realize I've logged in so it just sits there with the bitbucket webpage within its window and the only option is to cancel:

Ok so then I try Basic auth and it also gets stuck when I presumably enter the wrong password. And then there's no way to go back!

And then there's the general instability: SourceTree crashes while running in the background. It's one thing if an app crashes while doing some complicated task, but just running in the background and crashing, well that's embarrassing. Are you not collecting crash reports? What the hell is going on over there?

This is just totally a pathetic lack of QA. SourceTree is not a complex app, and should be easy to make really stable. And please clean up the user experience. Please!
