Fail commit if certain text in the commit

Some of the guys here want a commit to fail if there is a certain piece
of text in the commit. They want this because they often accidentally
commit files that they have temporarily changed, so if they add this
keyword to the temporary changes, the commit will fail if they forget to
deselect that file in TSVN (which they often do).

I have tried adding the following to the template pre-commit hook
(server running on RH9).

if $SVNLOOK diff -t "$TXN" "$REPOS" | grep -i "nocommit" >/dev/null
then (echo "Contains nocommit keyword"; exit 1)

but it doesn't seem to catch the keyword. Is it my Bash scripting (i'm
a total newbie to Bash) or my use of the pre-commit hook? The
pre-commit hook currently works for catching empty log messages, but I
have no idea why this one is not working.
