How do I avoid "could not unload due to name collisions"?

I get this error while trying to load a workspace even though the workspace was completely unloaded and the workspace filesystem space completely empty.   Is there a trick to this?

[tomcat@pzxdcc0131 sandbox]$ l
total 12
drwxr-xr-x  3 tomcat tomcat 4096 Nov 13 08:35 .
drwxr-xr-x  3 tomcat tomcat 4096 Nov 13 08:28 ..
drwxr-xr-x 20 tomcat tomcat 4096 Nov 13 08:34 .jazz5
[tomcat@pzxdcc0131 sandbox]$ scm load -d . -i -f --all -r "" -u "O386600" -P 'passwd'  'mbe release uat build'    
/wms/C Source
.. snip
Problem running 'load':
Load could not complete due to collisions. Choose a different destination for the load.

Appreciate your thoughts!

That is correct. The sandbox has the .jazz5 folder which contains the meta data.

 AH, I got it. . . you have to delete the root directory as well (which I suppose it because of the metadata and that jazz folder).  I removed the root directory and then ran this:

scm load -d sandbox -i -f --all -r "" -u "O386600" -P 'passwd'  'mbe release uat build' 
And it seemed to like it.
