Re: svnadmin dump hangs

I also dump the commited revisions in the hook script and never saw that
problem. My machine runs Solaris 9, SVN 1.2.1 and ra_dav.

An important difference might be that i run the dump script in background,
the post-commit hook contains only these lines:

trap "" 1
/srv/svn/scripts/post-commit-bg.sh "$1" "$2" < /dev/null > /dev/null 2>&1 &

The script post-commit-bg.sh then dumps the revision and sends commit
