Are you sure your script is being ran?  Put a date > /tmp/foo or something
like that in the script to verify it's being ran.

Then do a simple one like:

exit 1


fail.cmd (for win32)
echo.0|find "1"

One thing I had to remember to do was to make sure that different types of
triggers have different names.

If I have something like

foo //tree/branch/... "my.cmd %client%"
foo //tree/branch2/... "my2.cmd %client%"

That my.cmd was going to be ran in both cases.  Are you sure that's not
your problem?
