failing with code 129


I was unable to push a new commit, not even seeing the master branches in the push screen.  I tried updating the embedded git, but that update failed after downloading.  Now Sourcetree constantly puts up error boxes that say

'git status' failed with code 129: Unknown option: ---no-optional-locks[+many more lines]

I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling Sourcetree.  I am using Windows 10.  Any suggestions?  It is unusable right now.  Thanks.

update: switching to system git appears to have resolved the problem
