SourceTree creates uncommitted changes when switching branches

Hey guys,

I am developing two different features in different folders and branches of a git repo.

Nearly everytime I switch from one branch to another - after committing everything - SourceTree creates uncommitted changes in the branch I just switched to, that come from the branch I switched from. This constantly messes up my repo and I have to clean up the branches again.

Why is this happening?

Thanks in advance for your help.

I'm having the same problem. It seems like if I have more then one file to commit and push then switch to another branch this branch has all the uncommitted changes from the branch I just pushed. I have to discard all changes then do my merge. AHHHHH! It just start doing this all of a sudden.
