OpenSSH Authentication fails when Visual Studio is running

Hey there,

I'm using the latest SourceTree (Standalone, no plugin) and Visual Studio 2015. I'm not able to stage files or commit while Visual Studio is running. The error says: "The OpenSSH agent is running but the server still rejected your connection. You may need to add the correct key to your agent... ". Using the terminal (git add *) works fine, so this seems to be a problem of SourceTree. After closing Visual Studio everything works, too.

Thanks for looking into this. By the way, I'm able to reproduce this behaviour on three machines.

Seems to work after the update yesterday. Now the UI of the "File Status"-Page is not updated after a commit. Files are still in the "staged" list.
