Since the command causing problems is the TRUNCATE TABLE, which empties
out the entire table. Running OPTIMIZE afterwards should be really quick
as the table is empty, therefore there should be no performance hit to
running it. Or if you really want to avoid running it, could you just put
in a specical case for it?

I think we should have even this workaround fix in place.
