RBTools configuration file:

REVIEWBOARD_URL = 'https://company_internal_reviewboard_url/'
REPOSITORY = 'my_repository'
TRACKING_BRANCH = "origin/master"

Temporary solution.

Uninstall rbtools and reinstall it with version 4.0. With version 4.0 all works fine.

Notice: when you have already installed rbtools with version 4.0 and upgrade it to 4.1 it still works fine, but when you are doing fresh installation it wont work.
