Thanks for the reply Dominic, have you tried that when applying
to a spawned process? My understanding is you still need the
post-commit hook to spawn a process. Pre 1.3.1 this worked

start /b <process>

Post 1.3.1 it doesn't. Amongst others, i've tried

start /b 1>NUL: 2>NUL: <process>
start /b <process> 1>NUL: 2>NUL:
start /b 1>NUL: 2>NUL: <process> 1>NUL: 2>NUL:

Also tried cmd instead of start, but still no joy.

The workaround I hacked together does the job,
but it would be better to have a proper resolution.
