Have you recently updated to Hg 4.7 was it working before you upgraded? We currently test against and ship with 4.6 so we will check if there is any issue with the hg-flow extension and v4.7

Has this issue been resolved. I am still seeing the issue when using Hg 4.7 and SourceTree The Hg Flow doesn't work properly.

Having a similar issue with HG 4.8 and sourcetree 3.0.8

I think I resolved this but I don't remember if it was by installing a newer or older version, or what.  Sorry.
