Sounds like a sensible concern; gitk in v1.8.3 has it without catch
so we may see failure reports from OSX users soonish, in which case
both this patch and gitk need to be updated for it.

Stefan (as your name appears in 76bf6ff93e, I am assuming that you

the list traffic to see if users of latest gitk have issues with
that change, please?
