git-gui: Handle starting on mapped shares under Cygwin
I really cannot explain Cygwin's behavior here but if we start git-gui through Cygwin on a local drive it appears that Cygwin is leaving $env(PATH) in Unix style, even if it started a native (non-Cygwin) Tcl/Tk process to run git-gui. Yet starting that same git-gui and Tcl/Tk combination through Cygwin on a network share causes it to automatically convert $env(PATH) into Windows style, which broke our internal "which" implementation.
