Jeremy, are you sure about this? I just saw this comment 
on /home/svn/repositories/LFS/hooks/post-commit:

# Note that 'post-commit' must be executable by the user(s) who will
# invoke it (typically the user httpd runs as), and that user must
# have filesystem-level permission to access the repository.

Maybe the above comment applies only for the http:// protocol (which is 
disable on our repository)?
