Which error message and code are you seeing exactly?

The cleanup code calls a functions which is supposed to remove
files even if they don't have write-permissions, and even on Windows.
It looks like in your case this is going wrong for some reason.

On Unix, it is working as expected for me:

$ touch foo
$ chmod 444 foo
$ svn st
?       foo
$ svn cleanup --remove-unversioned
D         foo
$ svn st

I don't have a Windows machine.

 This is not clear in the help text although it seems to work (until it hits the read-only

Yes, passing both flags at the same time is valid.

Well, it should already work without errors.
I am not sure why it does not work for you :-/
