I've been using sourcetree for about 2 years now, a year in the current environment.
Recently, it started asking for github credentials over and over again. At this moment, it doesn't connect at all.
I verified my credentials by logging on to github.com.
I checked the stored credentials in SourceTree under Tools/Options/Authentication. I tried to delete the stored ones - but I can't. I tried to edit the topmost one, but the problem remains.

In Tool / Options / Authentication I have 3 different entries, all of them are marked as default - and I can't delete them.

After restarting SourceTree I could clone github repos again, git communication seems OK now.
