I can see 2 possible problems:

1. What if 2 or more post-commits are trying to update the same WC at
the same time?

2. If your SVN server is running under windows, or your hook script is
an actual program (example: post-commit.exe), then the file containing
the script or program might be open when the SVN update is taking
place. In that case, the update will fail to update the running
