Subgit and svn commit message hook

We are using subgit to sync git and svn and there is a svn hook for checking commits messages format.

We found that we are limited on which git action we can perform without violating the svn hook. For example:

git commit -m ‘XYZ: abc’
git push.
works ok.

git tag -a 1.0.0 -m ‘XYZ: abc’
git push 1.0.0
the svn hook will fail because subgit is not attaching the message when syncing to svn.

And so on.

Is there a solution to this beside using git –alow-empty to fake a message or performing the action in svn and wait to sync?
