[SVN - post-commit hook] hook failed, did not exit cleanly

Hi all,

I am trying to create a post-commit hook script for Subversion, but I always
keep on getting this error:

  'post-commit' hook failed (did not exit cleanly: apr_exit_why_e was 2,
exitcode was 10). with no output.
What I did was create a file "post-commit" in the repository under the
hooks/ directory.
  root_at_noname:/data/svn/testing/hooks# ls -lA post-commit
-rwxr-xr-x 1 _www _www 31 Jan 21 09:09 post-commit
  root_at_noname:/data/svn/testing# ls -lAd hooks/
drwxr-xr-x 12 _www _www 408 Jan 21 09:09 hooks/
  root_at_noname:/data/svn# ls -lAd testing/
drwxr-xr-x 9 _www _www 306 Jan 20 23:12 testing/
  root_at_noname:/data# ls -lAd svn/
drwx------ 74 _www _www 2516 Jan 21 00:14 svn/
  root_at_noname:/# ls -lAd data/
drwxr-xr-x 15 steven staff 510 Jan 17 16:12 data/

As you can see from the directory listings here above, the directory is
readable/writable by the www:www user. Under which the apache user runs, and
under which dav_svn was configured.

Subversion itself works perfectly, just not the post-commit hook.
  root_at_noname:/data/svn/testing/hooks# cat post-commit

echo "Hello world";

As you can see, nothing fancy happens here...

I went already to search a little, and found out that "apr_exit_why_e"=2
means it's killed by signal. But why? I mean, the www user has complete
rights to the script, it's executable etc etc...

Can someone tell me what I am missing here?

Thanks a lot!
