The problem is the limitation of the command line on Windows.  Mark has a 
shallow clone, and it was kept shallow all the time, basically 
accumulating commits that are not really parent-less, but in this 
repository, they are.

So gitk was calling git with a way-too-long command line, and it just 
died, taking gitk with it.
