Does the pre-revprop-change hook actually return *success*? The
default template file (pre-revprop-change.tmpl, which needs to be
copied to pre-revprop-change) is to disallow revprop changes (i.e.
return failure.)

Either way, this question belongs on the users_at_subversion.tigris.org
list; this list is about the development of svn itself.
