This is not an answer but I am wondering what the difference between local
and remote commits is. I had thought that if pre-commit hook exists, it will
be called no matter what kind of commit it is.

As Andy pointed out earlier, without looking at the pre-commit hook, it will
be difficult to tell. There are many things that could go wrong in the hook
script. Some of the more common ones are not having execute permission for
the hook script, assuming pre defined environment for the session that
executes the script etc. Please see
http://subversion.tigris.org/faq.html#hook-debugging. In this case, I am
guessing that you don't have execute permission for the script.
