Sourcetree 3.0.1: Clicking "Settings" button for any Git repository freezes app

I just upgraded (by simply replacing the previous (2.2.4) with the new (3.0.1) in my Applications folder.

The app launches and repositories can be be viewed. But whenever I click "Settings" for any git repository, the app just freezes with the pizza cursor and never opens the settings window. I have to force quit the app.

This only happens with git repositories and Mercurial repositories are ok.

I even created a new local git repository from within Sourcetree and Settings also freezed the app.

Can somethign be done? Also, is there a way to report specific bugs like this?

Same problem here. macOS 10.13.6, SourceTree 3.0.1.

Open a repository in the repository browser. Click the settings cog and it just freezes with a the spinning beachball.

Hmm, following the procedure you refer me to, I end up with a file named


Which is 153 Mb in size. Of course, I cannot send this along with a bug report.

Is there some data I should extract from that file?


Anything I can do to help further and resolve this?


Same thing here. Looks like there's an issue raised about it here:

This is for a newly-cloned repo (from BitBucket) on a freshly launched SourceTree. It used to be intermittent, but now happens all the time, making ST unusable since I can't configure my repos.
