git gui and gitk fail to start on cygwin updated 8/25/2011

I get the following error:

Application initialization failed: no display name and no $DISPLAY environment v
Error in startup script: no display name and no $DISPLAY environment variable
    while executing
"load /usr/lib/tk8.5/../../bin/libtk8.5.dll Tk"
    ("package ifneeded Tk 8.5.9" script)
    invoked from within
"package require Tk"
    (file "C:\cygwin\bin\gitk" line 11)

I am not running the X server.

It has been a few months since I update cygwin.  Until I did git was working fine.
I installed doxygen, and from ports I installed graphviz.

I redacted cygcheck.out

Thanks, Jim Jensen
