A really simple alternative would be to ditch the hook and just run
svn update as a Scheduled Task. Normally, I'd do it every hour, but
in your case perhaps every 15 minutes.

You could have svn update redirect to a log file served by your web
server so a "confused developer" could check the log and see if the
update has run yet.

On Unix you can just run the hook as a background process and return
control to the client sooner. My understanding is that no one has got
this to work on Windows.
