How do I stop SourceTree from hiding my taskbar on Windows?

With the new interface, I've had a consistent problem with the Sourcetree window. I have my Windows taskbar set to automatically hide. It becomes visible when I bring my mouse down to the bottom of the screen. When I maximize Sourtree, this no longer functions. It's as if Sourcetree is rendered on top of everything including the taskbar.

This occurs on every computer I have Sourcetree installed. My current system has Windows 10 x64 installed. This is not a result of a misconfiguration of an OS setting because Windows 10 no longer has an option to turn off "taskbar always on top". This is always set to true by default on all modern versions of Windows.

Does anyone have a solution for this? It's really annoying and I'm surprised it's not bothering more people.
