After installing 2019.1 I am having an issue with a GitHub login dialog continuously prompting for name/password.
The thing is that even if I don't enter any password and just cancel the login commits/pulls etc will still succeed.
However the dialog will popup 3 times in a row and keep repeating every few minutes even when I am not doing any GitHub action. Its like this is connected with some background process
Entering my correct name and password makes no difference, a few minutes later the dialog will reappear.
The log shows repeated entries like this:

This also has happened before in previous years during EAP's but then mysteriously seems to clear when the final release version appears.
Any idea how to get rid of the problem?
