git-gui: Unconditionally use absolute paths with Cygwin

The mapping of Windows vs Cygwin/Posix paths is arbitrary and not knowable
from the Posix side, so logic to determine whether to use relative paths
to locate the git-gui library just does not work on Cygwin. Fix this to
unconditionally use absolute path on Cygwin. (This fixes a regression
from 1.5.4).

Tip: Filter by directory path e.g. /media app.js to search for public/media/app.js.
Tip: Use camelCasing e.g. ProjME to search for
Tip: Filter by extension type e.g. /repo .js to search for all .js files in the /repo directory.
Tip: Separate your search with spaces e.g. /ssh pom.xml to search for src/ssh/pom.xml.
Tip: Use ↑ and ↓ arrow keys to navigate and return to view the file.
Tip: You can also navigate files with Ctrl+j (next) and Ctrl+k (previous) and view the file with Ctrl+o.
Tip: You can also navigate files with Alt+j (next) and Alt+k (previous) and view the file with Alt+o.
