I generally run my notmuch commands through notmuch-retry. See http://notmuch.198994.n3.nabble.com/PATCH-Add-shell-script-notmuch-retry-td417192.html That could be easily amended to log tag commands. You could then restore from your most recent dump and replay all the tag commands since that dump, minus the offending command. Not a perfect solution, but it would work. Maybe I'll build it if I encounter some free time.
