I found a solution, which does not make me happy: the processes
(obviuosly) stopped because of whitespaces in the keyword list. The -0
option to xargs healed this.

Anyway, I am still wondering why this is a problem in a hook script, but
not from cron...

But the ulimit hint perhaps explains the behavior that scripts doing
much work invoked from post-commit run longer: the process limit is 2047
then, and unlimited otherwise. Could be an explanation (but I still
don't know why this occurs).

Thanks again for all hints.

regards,
