For commit:
Cleanup won't necessarily work if the files are actually locked when committing.

Jack, is it possible that the files are locked by somebody else, or that you've locked them in another working copy? (Or that they've been locked somewhere that no longer exists?)

I've been there myself. Often the only real way to clear this is to check "Steal the locks" in the "Get Lock" dialog.

Either that, or (actually a more team-focussed approach) find who has the locks and ask them to release the locks.

For update:
It could be a permission issue. Do you have full read/write access to all of the working copy? (Or at least the named files?) Does somebody (yourself included) have the file(s) open in a program that locks it? (Microsoft packages such as Word and Excel are prime offenders here.)
