Wait. You are committing from within the POSTCOMMIT directory! So of
course the working copy will be locked -- a commit is currently in
progress in it.

You should not be committing from the POSTCOMMIT directory. That
working copy should only be manipulated by the post-commit hook, and
not by you.

Get a different working copy, somewhere else, and commit in it. Your
post-commit hook should be working fine.

It's not really relevant here, since your post-commit hook doesn't
use any of the parameters given to it, but note that the first
parameter to the post-commit script is the path to the repository on
disk, not its URL; and the second parameter is the revision that was
just committed.
