This may be an unexpected side-effect of the work done in 1.3.0 to return
error output from post-commit hooks to the caller.

You should be able to get the old behaviour if you can arrange for the
called process to be completely divorced from the caller: I suspect some
combination of redirecting stdin, out, err; nohup; and the bash 'disown'
builtin would help here, though I'm not sure entirely how to achieve it.
