git doesn't read the script; the interpreter does.  In the case of a
script, the interpreter is specified in the #! line at the top; in the
case of a binary executable, it is specified within the executable (and
for linux, is usually /lib/ld-linux.so.2).

Exactly the same should happen if you run the hook manually, so you can
try that to debug it.

Note also that Weird Things(tm) relating to SIGPIPE may happen if you
don't read your input.  Even if you are only fooling around for testing,
a post-receive hook must consume its input, e.g., by discarding it with
'cat >/dev/null'.
