The problem only occurs if you have a native-tcl run of gitk that
created ~/.gitk, then upgrade git to the X-tcl version, and reload that
~/.gitk.  If you only ever used gitk after installing the X-tcl version,
the upstream code is doing the correct thing.

But yes, an upstream patch that teaches gitk to be tolerant regardless
of which style ~/.gitk was previously created in would be appreciated.
