You shouldn't just modify the postcommit file in the CVSROOT - you
should checkout CVSROOT, modify the postcommit there, then check it in

I just checked with the following batch file:

@echo off
echo postcommit fired
d:\cvsbin\cvs -d d:/repo co -d copy cvsroot

..which works as expected.  Assuming your batch file is similar it
should probably work.
