Still, could you please disclose what is the full pathname of your
repository and what is the pathname of the offending file in the
repository?  If you can't detect the offending file, you could try to 
infer what it is--I presume you should have been looking at that file's
diff or commit log in gitk.

You might consider to not post this data here but rather do the
calculation yourself: the length of the name of the file in your repo
must be under MAX_PATH characters which is 260 [1].

As to different behaviour of gitk between your development
workstations... does the situation change if you set the knob "patch /
files" atop of the bottom-right window to "files"?
