Could you post the relevant line from the commitinfo file in CVSROOT
directory your repository ?

I have a similar case, and the commitinfo line looks like this:
ALL /usr/local/bin/cvs_commit_verify  %r %p %m %{s}

- ALL: means the script is called for any commit
- /usr/local/bin/cvs_commit_verify: the name of the script to run
(the rest of the explanations I just copied from the commitinfo
- %r = repository (path portion of $CVSROOT)
- %p = path relative to repository
- %m = log message
- %{s} = file name, file name, ...
