On Windows, the path is set to something weird, and so files you
create with relative paths do get created, but probably not where you
wanted them. On Unix/Linux/Mac OS X, the path is empty, so files you
try to create with relative paths do not get created anywhere. In
both cases, you should use absolute paths.

That is correct; it cannot work if you just call the script without
specifying the path to it, unless you first define the path
correctly. The example hook script doesn't attempt to do either,
which is confusing. Perhaps the example hook script should be improved.
