svnsync docs - start-commit hook does not work as described

It seems that the svnsync docs[1] are outdated.
They say: "you may want to add a start-commit hook script that disallows
commits from users other than the one you run svnsync as".
But the following "start-commit" hook makes the sync process fail, even though
to my opinion it conforms with the abovementioned part of the docs:

[[ "$USER" = 'svnsync' ]] && exit 0
echo 'Only the svnsync user can commit' >&2
exit 1

(Essentially the same script as printed in the "Basic Setup" part of the

Enabling this hook results in the not-very-descriptive error message:
"svnsync: Error retrieving replay REPORT (165001): APR does not understand
this error code"

The used commandline is:
# svnsync sync --sync-username=svnsync file:///path/to/mirror/repos

Can someone confirm this issue?
