Commit blocked by pre-commit hook (exit code 255) with no output

Hello,

I'm having problems with hook scripts (pre-commit or post-commit)
- When I try to commit, the svn commit is not performing completely, it
is returning "Commit blocked by pre-commit hook (exit code 255) with no
output"

It passed a long while that I am trying to fix this problem without
having no solution. I tried and read lots of things (here and in other
places) and none seems to be working.

The only answers I can find were related to the permissions of the
pre-commit hook file, but I also tried all possible combinations and
nothing works.

These are the important information I have:

pre-commit file:
----------------------
#!/bin/sh
echo "pre-cimmit running" 1>&2
exit 0
----------------------

permissions in the repository folder:
drwxrwxrwx. 7 apache apache 4096 Apr 14 18:36 testrepo
-rwxrwxrwx. 1 apache apache 61 Apr 14 19:26 testrepo/hooks/pre-commit

when I try to commit: svn commit -m "commit log"
svn: Commit blocked by pre-commit hook (exit code 255) with no output
(a warning pops also when i rename to post-commit, just for

apache error_log:
[error] [client 127.0.0.1] Commit blocked by pre-commit hook (exit code
255) with no output. [409, #165001]

OS: Fedora 16

I am out of options, does anybody has a proper solution to this ?
Thanks in advance
