Close branch disabled for branches prefixed with 'feature/' in mercurial repository

We don't use hg flow but do name our branches in a similar fashoin. E.g. I've just created a branch called


But I can't close it. If I right click on the branch, close branch is disabled. For branches not prefixed with feature/ 'close branch' is enabled as expected.

I've just updated to 1.9.0 and think this problem has just appeared but I can't be sure.
