Thanks for the help, I'll have to look into that further. If that is
the case, would setuid be appropriate here? Or is there a better way
to give the script the appropriate permissions?
The only thing that baffles me is that the script works before a
commit and only sometimes after a commit, if it were an access problem
wouldn't it fail before the commit as well?
