Authorization failed: attempting svn propedit --revprop

I am just learning SVN and am testing the usage of hook scripts. I'm trying
to get the pre-revprop-change.tmpl script working. I just renamed the
pre-revprop-change.tmpl to pre-revprop-change.pl and tried running the svn
command below on a sample repository.

C:\work\sesame>svn propedit --revprop -r 39 svn:log
svn: Authorization failed

I get the Authorization failed error message. I'm not a PERL guy so one of
my questions is: is that template adequate or do I need to adjust it in some
way to get it working?

I am running Windows XP, SP2 + svn 1.4.3, and have Perl from ActiveState:

C:\work\sesame>svn --version
svn, version 1.4.3 (r23084)
