Sourcetree context menu unusable (possibly) due to LFS Edited


I'm a long-time friend of Sourcetree, thank you Atlassian!

Now, I have a necessity to use Sourcetree with a big repo (>4.5 GB, without the .git folder). LFS content is also big (>2.8 GB), with the long list of files (>2000).

(EDIT: I've just noticed, the same behaviour can be reproduced on a small, one-file repo too - my note on how big is the repo/LFS is irrelevant.)

When using Sourcetree (workspace: history or file status), right-click on a filename (staged/un-staged files) brings up the file context menu (screenshots for an example).





It takes ages (ok, 2-3 seconds) for the menus to pop-up. Same applies for any action in the menu - it takes ages for any action to be highlighted.


The process viewer ("Tools/Process Viewer...") shows for any of these actions the "git lfs call".
Command: git lfs version
Status: Finished
Path: C:\Users\<USER>\AppData\Local\Temp
Duration: 00:00:00 (this takes longer actually :) )
Caller Context: GetLargeFileSupportVersionProcess


My questions are:
Is this a bug or a feature? If feature, then the feature makes SourceTree non-usable.


For repos (also large ones) without LFS content, this context menu works fine.

What are the possibilities this to be fixed?

Basically, this makes a difference of using or not using the Sourcetree client for us (a relatively high number of devs).

Thank you!
