I think it doesn't clean 'command locks' by default since when I run update
right after the cleanup (as my example above), it fails for reason:

Error: Working copy 'c:\svn\repoName' locked.
Error: 'c:\svn\repoName' is already locked.
Error: Please execute the 'Cleanup' command.

But this was fixed by the argument /breaklocks for cleanup. Byt since this
argument wasn't listed in the documentation I linked to it sounded like it
would do this automatically.

Thanks you, /breaklocks was the argument I was looking for. I'm not sure if
I was looking at the wrong documentation, or if the documentation hasn't
caught up with the code, but I was googling for quite a while and couldn't
find it.
