Re: gitk unusable in cygwin-1.7.6-1 because tcltk-20080420-1 is native win32 app.

        Thank you for summarizing the thread. I tried
using the snapshot cygwin1-20100829.dll.bz2 and confirmed that gitk works
okay again.

        One thing to note. I said in the previous mail that "gitk unusable
in cygwin-1.7.6-1", but after more testing, I found I was wrong in saying
that. The correct description of the problem in cygwin-1.7.6-1 was "gitk
does work in a directory with only ascii characters in its path, but is
unusable in a directory that contains a non-ascii character in its path."
In the latter case,

echo "puts [pwd]"|wish

returned //?/PIPE .

        But I confirmed this was fixed and gitk works again in the snapshot
cygwin1-20100829.dll.bz2 . I thank the developers for fixing this.
