SourceTree messes up the commitname of the Submodule in use


I am playing around with SourceTree and submodules and i have added a submodule then at some point i changed the Submodule to a Tag named Test. The Submodule name in the tree reflects this on the parent repo, that's fine. Now i checkout to master to get back to master but the name in the tree still says Test but now with a commit added (which is master) but the name is wrong. It should not state Test anymore since i am not looking at the Tag. Best would be stating master and the commit.

This must be a bug.

Can you post a screenshot of what you mean? It's a little hard to follow.
