How to I prevent SourceTree from killing Pageant?

CodionLtd I'm New Here Feb 23, 2021

SourceTree apparently recently added the "Automatically start SSH agent" option but even if I turn this off, it still KILLS the agent when SourceTree closes, which is quite stupid -- killing it even if you DID start seems silly, but killing it when you DIDN'T start it is surely just broken code.

Is it possible to fix this bad/broken behaviour?

SourceTree apparently goes by process name; I made a copy of pageant.exe called my-pageant.exe and launched it, and it stays running even after I close SourceTree.

Hopefully Atlassian will fix this behavior soon; for SourceTree to forcibly terminate processes that it doesn't start is very unwelcome.

Thanks for this observation - a useful work-around until Athlassian sort out their very anti-social behaviour!    I think it's poor behaviour even if SourceTree launched Pageant, but indefensible behaviour when it /didn't/ launch it.
