Source Tree prepends "heads/" prefix while finish hotfix



when I attempt to finish hotfix Source Tree (v2.5.5.0) prepends to hotfix name "heads/". So it crashes because such branch does not exist


sh.exe path\to\Atlassian\SourceTree\gitflow_local\gitflow\git-flow hotfix finish -f path\to\Temp\zwckkvmt.2cd heads/hotfix/hf5-test
Fatal: Branch 'hotfix/heads/hotfix/hf5-test' does not exist and is required.
Completed with errors, see above.

What's wrong? Is this a bug?

Hello! Could you try the latest version and see if this is still an issue? I'm unable to reproduce this issue on my machine.

Hi, Mike!

Obviously this issue is not depends on version. With the new one the problem still remain. Maybe I should clean some sort of temporary files, cache etc?

But I guess it is a bug. While fetching a hotfix name in a dropdown-list on finish hotfix form, so it correlates with the path .git\refs\heads and does not process it correctly. Why are you couldn't reproduce this bug, so it may depends on temp files as I assumed above

The problem still present in the newest version 3.0.12

just happened to me with 3.3.8

I think what happened is I had a tag with the same name as the branch.  Once I deleted that tag the prepending of "heads/" stopped for the branch.
