This comes from 5b2d8d6f2184381b76c13504a2f5ec8a62cd584e

   .. invoke verify_refname_available() to try
    to generate a more helpful error message.

    That function might not detect an error. For example, some
    non-reference file might be blocking the deletion of an
    otherwise-empty directory tree, or there might be a race with another
    process that just deleted the offending reference. In such cases,
    generate the strerror-based error message like before.

I think we want to keep this behavior, hence I think this should be kept as is.

I'll add a comment.
