SourceTree "Log Selected" doesn't work on files in Git-LFS

Selecting a file that is stored in Git-LFS in sourcetree, then right-clicking and selecting "Log Selected" gives the error: 

"Potential security issue detected in the specified URL."

"Sourcetree determined this URL is in an unsupported format."

Log Selected has always worked (and still works, for non-LFS files) fairly reliably. I've repro'd this on SourceTree 2.7.1 Mac with multiple different repos. Don't have my Windows box handy to verify on Windows. Is this a bug, and if so is there a way to file a proper bug report?

Hi ferretnt,

Our apologies for the inconvenience. Please file a ticket at with details (or vote/comment on an existing one) and include details about the file's path in the repo. Based on that we'll be able to determine what's going on. If it's a sensitive URL indicate that and we'll work with you to isolate it in another way.

OK, I think I've created a new issue SRCTREE-5617. I couldn't find a corresponding existing one. 

I can't give any further details about what exactly the "sensitive URL is" or why sourcetree thinks it's sensitive, because it shouldn't actually be sensitive, and I think that error, which is the only error sourcetree gives, is inaccurate. The actual error should probably say "Git log for files in LFS doesn't currently work."
