I traced this back to revision 1822 (64df422), and there's no explanation why we

Maybe because you can't be sure the situation will be the same as the one before you ran the command ? However, normal race condition could still happens so that would not seems like a strong enough reason ? With the current code coverning the full command execution, I feel like this change is fine.
