Description Joseph Hanna 2014-02-03 04:22:32 UTC
Description of Problem:
A Stash cannot be converted to a Branch using the Stash Manager.  This is happening in the beta channel XS 4.2.3 now, but it also happened with the previous stable release also (4.2.2).

I posted a message on Xamarin Forums hoping someone would tell me what mistake I had made :-) http://forums.xamarin.com/discussion/comment/42520

Steps to reproduce the problem:
1. Change some source.
2. Stash it into a new Stash, enter a comment.
3. From the menu, choose "Version Control" -> "Manager Stashes".
4. Select the new stash from the Stash Manager.
5. Click on "Convert to Branch"
6. Nothing happens...

Actual Results:
Button appears to click but nothing results from the action.

Expected Results:
The Stash should be converted into a Branch, the Stash should disappear from the Stash Manager a confirmation message should appear confirming all went well!

How often does this happen?
