I'm not saying your argument is wrong, I just think you must account for the relativistic effects on your instruments. Both gravity and accelerated motion change clock rates and bend measuring rods and light rays. I personally don't believe this particular issue can be settled by thought experiments, especially as the angles between the force vectors are so small - it's extremely easy to overlook something and believe there are differences where none can be measured.
