Yup. Followed the procedure and it works from the command line.

I traced the error through Net::SMTP to a call to "$obj->response" at
that line, it never finishes Net::SMTP. The "response" is from
Net::Cmd, so I'll have to trace it in there. I suspect that Net::Cmd
croaks or something, and since the post-commit command never
completes, Subversion gives me the MERGE error.

Someone suggested I try Mail::Sendmail. I chose Net::SMTP because
that's a standard Perl module, but if it doesn't work, I'll switch to
