post commit script and svnlook (log and changed are empty)

Hi -

I've made a very simple script which mails me info about each commit to a
SVN repository.
it uses "svnlook changed -r N path", "svnlook log -r N path" and "svnlook
author -r N path" to compose the message

When I run it from the command line it works fine - but when I add it to my
postcommit hook, the changed and log entries are empty (author is fine, and
correct). I've tried adding some sleep (time.sleep(2) in a loop) but still
no dice - after waiting 20s there's still nothing in the svnlook changed.

So I've probably missed something... But can't work out what it is (as I'm
using svn+ssh, I don't think it can be a permissions thing).



BTW, before someone asks - I haven't used any of the existing
tools/hook-scripts as I haven't yet managed to install svn module into
python and I can't get the perl script to work (maybe because I did an
export from the HEAD of svn of subversion, cause wasn't in my default
(darwinports) install), and I've got such a small developer base (2) and
such limited needs, I thought it might -- might-- be quicker to just hack
out a quick script... now I'm just "hooked".

fyi - more details:
svn running on: osx 10.3 panther
client running on: windows xp (tortoisesvn)
script written in python (2.3)...

Python excerpt:
def svnlook(what, rev, repos):
    f=os.popen("""svnlook %s -r %s %s""" % (what, rev,repos), "r")
    val = "".join(f.readlines())
    return val

for i in range(10):
    changed = svnlook("changed", rev, repos)
    if changed:
if not changed:
    errors.append("No value for changed")

log = svnlook("log", rev, repos).strip()
author = svnlook("author", rev,repos).strip()

f=os.popen("""mail -s "SVN: %s (r%s: %s)" %s""" %(log, rev, author,
f.write("%-20s %s\n" % ("repos:", repos))
f.write("%-20s %s\n" %("revision:", rev))
f.write("%-20s %s\n" % ("log message:",log))
f.write("changes:\n" )
if errors:
