git-gui: Don't nice git blame on MSYS as nice is not supported
Johannes Sixt reported that MinGW/MSYS does not have a nice.exe to drop the priority of a child process when it gets spawned. So we have to avoid trying to start `git blame` through nice when we are on Windows and do not have Cygwin available to us. Signed-off-by: Shawn O. Pearce <>
