git-gui: Stop deleting gitk preferences.

Now that git 1.5.0 and later contains a version of gitk that uses
correct geometry on Windows platforms, even if ~/.gitk exists, we
should not delete the user's ~/.gitk to work around the bug. It
is downright mean to remove a user's preferences for another app.
