gitk was saving widget sizes and positions when the main window was
destroyed, which is after all child widgets are destroyed. Tk resizes
container widgets as children are destroyed, so the saved main window
information was not as the user left the window. This patch causes the
info to be saved before the first child widget is destroyed. Also,
use wm geometry rather than winfo geometry (both work on Windows, on
Linux they give different answers and the former is correct).

 * Somehow this did not appeared on the list, so I am forwarding.

   After seeing what this patch has to do, I feel dirty, but
   that is not Mark's fault -- rather it is Tk's.

   I am tempted to suggest adding an explicit "Save window
   configuration" action on the menubar and forget about
   resurrecting the window configuration immediately before the
   end of the last session.
