git-gui: Stop deleting gitk preferences.
Now that git 1.5.0 and later contains a version of gitk that uses correct geometry on Windows platforms, even if ~/.gitk exists, we should not delete the user's ~/.gitk to work around the bug. It is downright mean to remove a user's preferences for another app. Signed-off-by: Shawn O. Pearce <>
