Local filesystem is out of sync. scm load --force does not work

I'm using a local workspace on a linux 64 machine and the command line interface.  The scenario is:

scm load -f
scm accept
Problem running 'accept':
Local filesystem is out of sync. Run 'scm load' with --force option to reload the workspace.

I have also tried
scm load -f
scm repair
scm accept

I get the same error in both cases. 

I have a workaround where I can accept the changes in the eclipse client.  Once I do this, suddenly I can run normally until I make changes in the local workspace again. 

Any ideas where I can go from here?  The error message is not particularly helpful.

I'm not sure why the --force option isn't working but there is an enhancement work item to implement a reload option if you were wondering if such a command exists.

scm load -f should download the incremental changes and make the sandbox in sync with the remote workspace. Please raise a defect. Thanks.

I've opened defect 215282. It is marked as a major defect because of the silent failure at a critical juncture of the build process.
