The pre-commit check is a feature, the fact that the Subversion client
fails to provide you with the error output is a bug.
Since this is a *.qbk file, and the original Subversion page omitted
auto-properties for *.qbk files, I'm guessing that you'll need to add
two properties to your file:
svn:eol-style should be native
svn:mime-type should be text/plain
See the "MIME Types and End-of-line Styles" section on:
If you've already set up the auto-props as it describes there, but sure
to copy in the *.qbk line, which is relatively new.
