I have never seen 'cleanup' do anything useful. As far as I can tell
it is a no-op :)

This problem seems to happen on Windows because of filename case
issues. The repository has the case of the filename different from the
working copy, or there are two files in the repo that differ only by
case. It is a problem that happens far to easily on Windows and I
really wish the windows clients would be smarter about it.
