Cloning from Sourcetree is hanging trying to check repository type (basic and oauth)

Using the 2.3.5.0 version of Sourcetree on Win 7 64, using both basic auth and oauth, when I try to clone a remote (shared) repository, "Clone" just seems to hang with a spinning loader as it seemingly tries to determine the repository type "Checking source"

Sourcetree is using System Git version 2.14.2/LibGit2Sharp 0.24.0
