Problems with gitk after cygwin update

Hello,

I just updated my Cygwin installation with the newest packages, especially
cygwin base from 1.7.5 to 1.7.7 and git from 1.7.1 to 1.7.2.3.

I'm now having problems when I launch gitk in the background from a xterm,
i.e. "gitk &". First of all, if I press any key after I switch back to the
xterm, it just closes. On the prompt "logout" is visible for just a moment
before it closes.

Secondly, I got the following error log when clicking around in gitk to
view some commits. I never had such problems before I updated.
