Break lock with cleanup through command line

I want to create a bat script that uses TortoiseSVN to update a svn repo.
It should be able to handle the repo being locked from if something went
wrong the last update.

What I tried was this (running 1.9.4):

START /WAIT TortoiseProc.exe /command:cleanup /path:"c:\svn\repoName"
/cleanup /noui /nodlg
START TortoiseProc.exe /command:update /path:"c:\svn\repoName" /closeonend:2

But the cleanup command doesn't seem to handle breaking locks. When I run
the cleanup command without /noui I get the cleanup options, where "Break
locks" is an option, which isn't the case for 1.8.11. In the documentation (
it says that the :cleanup command "Cleans up interrupted or aborted
operations and unlocks the working copy...".

Is it possible that the "Break locks" functionality was removed as a
default behavior for cleanup when the option was introduced in later
versions, but no command line option to do it was added? Or is there a way
of doing this?

Best regards,
Ragnar Hägg
