SourceTree crashing with multiple users on network share

Hi, I just finished training some developers on using SourceTree.  We are working on getting our ERP system under version control.  We had a lot of issues with SourceTree crashing during the training.  The scenario is I have ERP code on a network share, and multiple people working in the same folder on that network share.  I believe multiple users trying to commit/stage files against code in the same network share at the same time is causing the crashes (but cannot be certain).  I know that Git is designed for each developer to have their own code base, but because the code cannot be run or debug outside of the ERP server it needs to live on the the server.

I would really like to get SourceTree to work for us.  Can you offer any suggestions?

This ended up not being related to the network at all.  It was this issue:

Per the thread I had everyone go to Tools -> Options, and delete their info out of the Full Name and Email fields, commit, then add their info back and they were able to commit without crashing.
