When importing a sync project via the DBTransporterCmd, the ShadowCopy is not emptied. This means that after the import, the old status of the project is opened when the Sync project is opened.
The problem does not occur when importing via the GUI transporter.
This is a product defect (33751).
Use the GUI transporter.
This will be fixed in a future release of the product. If you require this immediately corrected, please contact support for a hotfix referencing the defect ID 33751.
