Editing Log Entry is Failing

I have found several how-to's, but my attemps are still failing to
change an existing commit message.

OS X 10.5, built-in svn (1.4.4)

Following this and several blogs with similar commentary
        http://subversion.tigris.org/faq.html#change-log-msg

I get this error message:

        pre-revprop-change' hook failed with error output:

but there's no other description of the error.

Steps I've followed:

I found the /{repo}/hooks/pre-revprop-change.tmpl file, and I removed
the .tmpl extension. The owner of that script file is the same as the
user under which svnserve is running.

Example command I'm trying:

svn propset -r 50 --revprop svn:log "...my_new_msg..." svn://
home.srvr/path_to/trunk/

and

svn propedit -r 50 --revprop svn:log (then using my editor)

I even went so far as to edit the hook script to have nothing in it
but exit 0 to force the return of 0.

Seems like this should be simple, but I'm missing something.
