Steps to Reproduce

Not Applicable.

Root Cause

User is under an assumption that all the expired locks will get deleted from the sys locks table.


SystemCleaner only deletes locks whose expiry date is older than three days.

Locks will only be deleted immediately on proper close of work object(using doclose) or when submit has happened on the work object.
