I've never had any problems with removing files from cache by hand.
Opera appears to be smart enough to sort out any inconsistencies
silently instead of throwing up error messages.

If you don't mind me asking, what problem are you trying to solve by
forcing everything to be retrieved afresh each time?  (The reason I
ask is because a common feature of technical groups is the number of
posts where people want to achieve result X, think they might be able
to do it with method Y, so they ask "How do I do Y?" when they should
really be asking "How do I do X?")
