Merge develop into develop?

I'm happily using SourceTree with my Bitbucket repositories, and overall it's going great. We are getting one weird thing happening though. The majority of the merges we do where we merge from one branch into another, the default commit messages say things like this:

Merge branch 'develop' of into develop

That isn't a typo, the default message says we're merging develop into develop, even when we're merging feature/fooFeature into develop. Is there something we're doing wrong, or some kind of bug we are running into?

Hey Mac,

Is this on Windows or Mac?

Thanks in advance!

Mostly Mac, but I use it on Windows too, and so do several of our users, and I'm pretty sure it has happened there too, but 100% sure it happens on Mac.

It looks like this is a git repository (rather than hg), is that right? I ask because the hg message is by default shorter, it just says 'Merge <source>'.

The thing is in that case the commit message on a merge commit comes from git itself rather than SourceTree. I've never seen it be incorrect like this though, unless you're doing this via git-flow and there's a bug there perhaps.
