The return codes are working for me on an old Windows build.
Perhaps, velocity, your JScript is not waiting for the process
to finish?

C:\temp\svn> svnlook uuid repos

C:\temp\svn> echo %ERRORLEVEL%

C:\temp\svn> svnlook uuid \temp
svn: Can't open file '/temp/format': The system cannot find the file

C:\temp\svn> echo %ERRORLEVEL%

C:\temp\svn>svnlook --version
svnlook, version 1.0.6 (r10360)
