Are you aware that when hooks execute when using file:/// that the
hooks execute on your local computer, under your credentials? This
could present some issues with your scripts.

If you're in a shared environment (multiple people using the
repository), you should be aware that using file:/// is strongly
discouraged and can lead to repository corruption or destruction.
File:/// is meant for single-user, non-networked usage & testing. If
you need to share a repository on a network, run a real (svnserve or
Apache) server.
