svnlook log doesn't return message

I have a problem during my commit: I control the log message with a
pre-commit hook . If we don't have a log message, I reject the commit.

When I trying to commit three files (after add the with tortoisesvn add
feature) - admin_habilitations.php, admin_news.php, admin_users.php -
wiith tortoisesvn and with a message, my transaction is reject because
it's say me that it can't find the log message. I check log message with
self made script. my script seems to work fine because on some others
projects, validation seems to works fine.

I run subversion under windows throw Apache web server running as service.
my svnparentpath is: D:\repositories

my hooks are bat files which call php scripts files:

My pre-commit. hook bat file have the following content:

@echo off
"D:\php\php.exe" %~dp0pre-commit.php %1 %2

svnlook command runned by php script file is the following one:
"C:\svn\bin\svnlook.exe" log -t 1-1 D:\repositories/myproject

My apache log file have the following related content: - - [28/Feb/2008:16:09:04 +0100] "OPTIONS
