Sourcetree does not ignore one specific file which is in the .gitignore


I have problem with Sourcetree keep showing one specific file in the Working Directory changes, while all other GUIs and git itself are ignoring this file. 

This file is not added to the index, and is showing in Sourcetree as "Not tracked".

Does you file listing in Sourcetree use the Pending option? If so this should effectively show the same information as the git status command?

If you run git status from the command line does it show a different list of files to Sourcetree?
