Uninstall and reinstall didn't help, as you said.

Running propdel from the commandline appeared to succeed, but actually didn't.

C:\temp>svn propdel svn:log REPO_URL --revprop -r HEAD
property 'svn:log' deleted from repository revision 2796

C:\temp>svn pl -v --revprop -r HEAD REPO_URL

## Propset below just to prove the hook is working.

C:\temp>svn propset testprop testval REPO_URL --revprop -r HEAD
svn: DAV request failed; it's possible that the repository's pre-revprop-change
hook either failed or is non-existent
svn: At least one property change failed; repository is unchanged
svn: Error setting property 'testprop':
Revprop change blocked by pre-revprop-change hook (exit code 1) with output:
Changing revision properties is prohibited by company policy

I also tried temporarily disabling the hook so I could set property
called testprop. Then I reanbled the hook to see if I could remove
it, to make sure there wasn't some special behavor for svn:*
properties. I got the same results.

C:\temp>svn propdel testprop REPO_URL --revprop -r HEAD
property 'testprop' deleted from repository revision 2796

C:\temp>svn pl -v --revprop -r HEAD REPO_URL
Unversioned properties on revision 2796:
  testprop : testval
  svn:log :
  svn:author : USER

Is this a bug with Subversion itself? I'm cross-posting to the
Subversion users list now.
