Source Tree Confronts me with 10 Password Requests and then Crashes

This is extremely frustrating, and interrupting to my client's hours.  I am simply trying to access a repo through Source Tree and as soon as I try to open Source Tree, it asks me for 5-10 password requests even though I have already typed in the passwords plenty of times and clicked Always Allow, and then soon after the program closes on me.

Does the pop-up window say Git Credentials for Windows? If so, try and disable it and see if that helps.

To disable it, run:

git config --system --unset credential.helper

You can also turn off the OpenSSH prompt by running:

git config --global --add core.askpass "" 

Removing the image cache folder under the  ~/Library/Application\ Support/SourceTree/ does not solve the problem, it still crashes.
