Git daemon running, but a git push fails, access denied

I've set up Git Daemon (1.7.x) on my MacMini Lion 10.7.3. I used a launchd plist file to launch the git daemon at system boot. Created a special '_git' user for the daemon. These are the arguments to the the git daemon to launch.

/usr/local/git/bin/git daemon --export-all --reuseaddr --base-path=/Library/Git/Repositories

Created a test git repo:
/Library/Git/Repositories/test-repo.git is a 'bare' git repo.

And the ownership (chown etc.) of the files belong to this '_git' user.

I can clone the above Git repo, on say another Windows or Mac computer:

git clone git://servername.com/test-repo.git

The repo clones correctly. Then do a local commit and try to push the changes back to my MacMini Git Daemon server:

git push origin master

But that gives a permission error on the server:

fatal: remote error: access denied or repository not exported: /test-repo.git

I added the magic file 'git-daemon-export-ok' file in the repo dir. But I keep getting the above error.

I even set the chmod to 777 of the /Library/Git/Repositories/test-repo.git

Same error.

I copied over the 'hooks/post-commit.sample' to 'hooks/post-commit'

But same error when trying to push. The 'export-all' flag is given for the git daemon and the post-commit is in place ...

Anyone any ideas?
