Need option to force "Fetch and store tags locally"

I would like to be able to pull from remotes a TAG even if it has been moved in the repository, instead of getting the "would clobber existing tag" error.

It would be great to have an option to force it, instead of having to use the command line:

git fetch --tags -f

Any news on a fix for this?  It's quite annoying to have to constantly execute `git fetch --tags -f` before you do any fetch/pull in the SourceTree application.  Kind of defeats the purpose of having a UI.
