a theme with the name <THEME NAME> 1011 and version already exists on the server

description

When I try to set a theme I often get the error:
"a theme with the name <THEME NAME> 1011 and version already exists on the server".
I know I can fix it by manually going to the site in SharePoint designer, deleting the offending theme from the _themes folder and trying again, but I don't want to do this every time for every site it fails on (which is quite often).
Is there any way that I can force the tool to reapply the theme to the site, overwriting the older existing (wrong) version?
