I have a new bitbucket project but when I download the files Sourcetree freezes and goes non-responsive for 30 minutes or more. None of the other projects in Sourcetree cause this issue. If I can eventually get off the new project tab, then the app appears to work fine. But if I tab back to it then Sourcetree freezes for 5 to 10 minutes before it'll show that tab again.
I have deleted the project and tried again but the results are the same. I've even removed it from bitbucket and started over but the results are always the same. Once it downloads the files the freezing starts.
