Syntax error in git commandline created by SourceTree Edited

I'm trying to create a tag using SourceTree.

When triggering the tag creation, SourceTree opens a window with the full error log, saying

git -c diff.mnemonicprefix=false -c core.quotepath=false tag -v -a -m "My message" A.00.01 27c5ead3fd84ea186f39415cd12bdc12bf8922d1
usage: git tag [-a | -s | -u <key-id>] [-f] [-m <msg> | -F <file>] <tagname> [<head>]


If I understand the git output correctly, it doesn't understand the parameter list that SourceTree is passing in.
What's going on, can I somehow fix this via a setting?

I'm using SourceTree and the external git version  (can't install the embedded one, I'm going to open another question for that)

Edit: the offending parameters seem to be -v and the two -c ones.

Turn off the verbose mode in Tools/Options/Git tab.

We're working on a fix at the moment.
