I don't see this behavior, either with or without "set -o ignoreeof".

I see a pop-up error message: "Cannot find a git repository here";
when I click "OK" the message vanishes, gitk terminates, and the
parent bash shell is undisturbed.  Same thing whether bash is
running under rxvt, xterm, or a Windows command window.

$ cygcheck -c -d cygwin gitk bash
