Ignore submodules

I'm working with a github repository that has a submodule and I don't have permissions to access the submodule repository.  Whenever I push/pull/etc Sourctree does "git -c diff.mnemonicprefix=false -c core.quotepath=false submodule update --init --recursive" which gives an error.  Is there a way of stopping it doing this?

SourceTree tries to be smart about the submodules in the background and there are no settings where you could change this. If it bothers you a lot, switch to another client, or find/create a feature request for this at http://jira.atlassian.com. (Post the link here in a comment for others if you do.)
