SourceTree will not apply a stash

When I attempt to apply a stash in SourceTree it returns this error:

git -c diff.mnemonicprefix=false -c core.quotepath=false stash apply stash@{0}

fatal: ambiguous argument 'stash@0': unknown revision or path not in the working tree.

Use '--' to separate paths from revisions

I'm able to successfully apply the stash using Git. Is there something I need to do to get stash working in SourceTree?

This is on Windows and I'm using system Git.

Hi Chris. Is this for Windows or Mac? Also, are you using embedded Git or system Git?

It's windows command line or cygwin problem, because { and } are special characters (I've got cygwin64 with git installed - set as system git - and got same problem).

You can reproduce it using cmd.exe and executing command: "git apply stash@{0}", when you add backslashes: "git apply stash@\{0\}" then it works fine.

Using embedded git solves the problem/
