"Large files detected" prompt for directories added to LFS

I'm playing around with git-lfs in SourceTree.  I've manually edited the .gitattributes file to include a directory for Git LFS tracking, like so:

extensions/** filter=lfs diff=lfs merge=lfs -text

When I try to stage a large  file in the "extensions" folder, I get the following prompt:

Capture.PNG

I have used

git lfs status

to verify that my large file is in fact being picked up by Git LFS.  Why doesn't SourceTree recognize this?

SourceTree for Windows, version 1.9.6.1

Embedded Git version 2.8.1 (+ git-lfs v1.2.0)

I've stumbled upon this issue as well, and our workaround was to explicitly set paths - a single * character on wildcards works, it's just ** that fails.

It'd be great to see this fixed though!
