Sourcetree not honoring Stash default branch?

I have set up a repository in Stash that has the default branch set to 'develop'. When I git clone this using the command line in Linux, I get the repository cloned with branch 'develop' set. When I try the same thing from SourceTree, I get the clone with branch 'master' set.

If I try the clone using the terminal to MINGW32, I get the master branch as well.

Is this a limitation of not being on the 1.9 git release?

Installed the beta version of the msysgit 1.9.0 release. Cloned repository and got the develop branch. Looks like 1.8.3 vs 1.9.0 functionality issue.
