Really basic question, but I can't find out how to checkout commits using
gitk. I know how to do it with the command prompt, but I want to use
git-gui. In "gitk", it is possible to click on commits and doing "reset".
But I just want to do a "git checkout" on the selected commit.
A typical example is when searching for a bug. You want to checkout,
compile, and test. I also know there is automatic support for this, but it
requires that you have an automated test.
