Hooks behaviour with svnsync

Hi all,

I am having a little problem to make svnsync work through post-commit +
pre-revprop-change pair. My setup is logically identical to this one:

However, if I perform a commit as a user other than 'svnsync', the
post-commit works to the point that is executes pre-revprop-change on
the mirror. Then the pre-revprop-change on mirror fails as it sees $USER
as my username instead of 'svnsync'. It fails with:

Warning: post-commit hook failed (exit code 1) with output:
svnsync: Revprop change blocked by pre-revprop-change hook (exit code 1)
with output:
Only the svnsync user may change revision properties as this is a
read-only, mirror repository.

AFAIK, pre-revprop-change should restart on the mirror as 'svnsync',
with clean env, because I literally tell it to do so in post-commit on


$SVNSYNC synchronize --source-username $SYNCUSER --sync-username

Any ideas, why my local $USER propagates as far as to pre-revprop-change
hook (or exactly $3 variable) on mirror? Initialisation in the hook is
standard: USER="$3". Interestingly, both 'svnserve -t' processes on
master and mirror are correctly owned by 'svnsync'.

Ah, my Subversion is 1.6.4.
