When you use file:///, the hook scripts execute on the workstation
which performed the action (in this case the commit). So, if any
paths, drive mappings, permissions, programs, etc. are different from
what you expect in the hook script, it'll likely fail.

This is one of the many reasons that using file:/// access across a
mapped drive with multiple users is so heavily discouraged. You really
ought to be running an actual Subversion server in this situation.
