I think I ran into that failure once in recent months...
It could be dealt with by writing the compiled version to a temporary name and renaming it into place once it's written. Any other load running in the meantime will see the old .elc file, older than the .el file, or maybe there won't be a .elc file, and either way, we can have the .el source loaded instead.
