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.
