Fetching from remotes when selecting upstream branch during rebase - branch doesn't get selected

What steps will reproduce the problem?
- Make sure there is a branch on the remote server that is not in your local repository
- Launch Rebase Screen
- Click the "..." Next to Upstream Dropdown
- Goto Remotes -> Origin -> Fetch From Origin, to retrieve the branch mentioned in 1.
- Highlight the branch mentioned in 1)
- Click OK
What is the expected output?
I'd expect the branch I selected to be chosen in the upstream dropdown.
What do you see instead?
The upstream dropdown has no items selected.
What version of TortoiseGit and msysgit are you using? On
what operating system?
Git Version 1.8.3.mysysgit.0
Please provide any additional information below.
If I go through the exact same process a second time - it works as expected. I suspect it goes wrong the first time because the branch mentioned in 1 is not in the list, so it can't select it. I suspect it's simply a case of "Refreshing" the upstream list prior to selecting the item, but I've no idea how easy/difficult this might be to implement.
I'll take a look in my spare time to see if I can contribute a patch.
