thanks for the input

i agree, why would it relate at all.
my script hangs the moment svn tries to get the externals. ie, after it
has downloaded all the other stuff without any problems

my $cmd = "path_to_svn_exe export file://localhost/d:/repos/rep_1/path";

my externals URL is an http url specfied like:

   LIB http://domain/rep_1/path

it would be nice if one could just specify the relative repository path
like just "/rep_1/path"

it seems after an empty ENV that http in general is unavailable on our
sytsem (win32). so i cannot get the http request on an empty ENV.

now i have tried to re-read the ENV (hardcoding) then i can indeed run
it on the server but NOT via the hook ??
