Rebuild errors after loading step file

I'm unable to open this step file in SolidWorks without a rebuild error. Looking at the model, I can see that one of the faces is missing. I am able to open this file in other solid modeling packages without errors.

 

Since other programs can read the file, I suspect it may be a SolidWorks bug. If there is a workaround, I would love to hear what it is.

 

SW does create an err file that looks like:

 

Error: Entity type not supported.

STEP-in did not complete successfully.
