Nothing is printed?  That should be.  You should at least see a line such as
"C  text.txt" that notes that your file is in a state of conflict.

When in non-interactive mode, Subversion can't ask you how you want to
handle conflicts.  So, by default, yes, --accept=postpone is the mode that
the update will operate in.  You can, however, choose a different mode with
--accept=SOMETHING_ELSE if you wish.
