Hmm... which version of the Subversion client are you using? Some
(older?) versions fail to display the result of the pre-commit hook,
which is obviously happening here. Otherwise, the pre-commit hook does
a good job of saying what it doesn't like.

The pre-commit hook does three things:
        1) Checks for problems on case-insensitive file systems, e.g., where
there's a file in the repository already that would have the same name
as a file you're committing on a case-insensitive file system.
        2) Checks for mime-type and eol-style.
        3) Checks for an empty log message

Worst case, you can send the change to me and I'll figure out what's
going wrong.
