In Egit 4.0.3 the browse button for the system wide gitconfig in Preferences under Team > Git > Configuration > System Setttings is missing.

The current location is shown as unknown for me.

1. How does Egit determine the location of the system wide gitconfig file?
2. Where is the Browse button to change that setting?

1. https://git.eclipse.org/r/#/c/48145/6/org.eclipse.jgit/src/org/eclipse/jgit/util/FS.java

I think this is broken, it works for me when I change the command being run to bash --login -c "git config --system --edit" so that it runs in a bash login shell.

2. this was removed in EGit in 4.0 due to API changes which broke the UI implementation and not yet reintroduced. We should fix this, the required JGit API is available: FS.setGitSystemConfig(File)

Please file a bug
