Crash on commit

Hi, it seems that every time I commit atm SourceTree crashes, I did a search here and the only solution I could find was to delete a draft commit message but I don't have one ( see attached  )

It appears that my commits are working as can see my changes in Bitbucket but very annoying that it crashes

I have the same issue, have you fixed the problem now?

Same thing for me. Crashes on every commit, the commits do work, though.

Same here. Is there a fix yet? 

Same here crashes after commiting, commit is done but i need to restart source tree to push

Same here. Please fix the bug!

Ditto.  This just started happening in the last couple of weeks.  It seems to commit, but crashes every single time, and it's really getting annoying.  Please fix this!

I found a "workaround":
crash does not happen If I do the commit from the "File Status" view.


Same here. Happened since the last Sourcetree update. All my fellow developers using different source control clients are laughing at me.

We have the same issue. I do a commit/push, it crashes, I restart SourceTree and can then complete the push without crashing. Started happening about 2 months or so ago.

same thing here, but it indeed works fine if commiting from the "File Status" view!

Same problem here

Me too! I'm using Alt + Shift + C to commit.

Same here. Workaround as mentioned by Vincent Barral works perfectly, but it's quite annoying. 

Same here! Plus mine crashes even when I commit from the "File Status" view. No actual fix yet?

There seems to be a bug report for this issue, please upvote so it will be fixed sooner!

If you have multiple repositories opened, moving all to the "File Status" view prior to committing seems to prevent the crash.

This is not fixed in  Sourcetree just crashed on consecutive commits.
