Looking more closely, the code in "git gui" is catching and silently
ignoring errors:

    ## On Mac, bring the current Wish process window to front
    if {[tk windowingsystem] eq "aqua"} {
        catch {
            exec osascript -e [format {
                tell application "System Events"
                    set frontmost of processes whose unix id is %d to true
                end tell
            } [pid]]
        }
    }

which explains why you don't see the "Not authorized to send Apple
events" error you see with gitk, and also explains why the application
doesn't get focus.

So, updating gitk to mirror git-gui might be one way forward.
