I quite like working with SourceTree, however, recently it has become a major blocker for my work. Any operation that involves some kind of git operation seems to be very slow. Examples are: Staging files, making a commit, building the branch view etc. Often the progress icon will rotate for several minutes in the index panel after staging a file before I can continue to work. This leads to a frustrating user experience when trying to get my work done. I am on version 126.96.36.199 and Mac OS X Yosemite (10.10.3).
PS: This here is the message I keep getting when I try to run any other operation while the progress icon is showing:
git -c diff.mnemonicprefix=false -c core.quotepath=false -c credential.helper=sourcetree -c sequence.editor='/Applications/SourceTree.app/Contents/Resources/stree_gri' -c core.editor='/Applications/SourceTree.app/Contents/Resources/stree_gri' rebase --continue
fatal: Unable to create '/Users/marw/Documents/workspaceDev_fix/censhare-product/.git/index.lock': File exists.
If no other git process is currently running, this probably means a
git process crashed in this repository earlier. Make sure no other git
process is running and remove the file manually to continue.
