Issue when creating a merge request with nested branch name

I just updated from version 4.2.5 to both 4.2.6 and 4.2.7 and I'm seeing this bug:
When I create a merge request from a branch with nested names (say `tomas/branch-name`), SourceTree pushes correctly but opens a new browser tab with an incorrect URL:

Pay attention to the end: `source_branch%5D=tomas%252Fbranch-name`

If I manually replace in the URL `%252F` with `%2F` and hit enter, it opens the correct URL.

For now, I downgraded to version 4.2.5 to keep this functionality unbroken.

Thank you

I'm also getting this issue on both 4.2.6 and 4.2.7, it looks like the slash in the branch name is getting double-encoded.

For reference I'm getting this issue both on Github and Gitlab so looks to be a Sourcetree bug that is not yet fixed
