Node-red-reload not always showing Welcome message

Running NR 3.0.1 with nodejs 16.16.0 on Ubuntu, installed using the Pi install script from the docs.
When I run
node-red-reload
to restart node-red, sometimes the start of the node red log is missing. So I see

~/.node-red$ node-red-reload
Stop Node-RED
 
Use   node-red-start   to start Node-RED again
[sudo] password for xxx: 
 

Start Node-RED
 
Once Node-RED has started, point a browser at http://192.168.49.92:1880
On Pi Node-RED works better with the Firefox or Chrome browser
 
Use   node-red-stop                          to stop Node-RED
Use   node-red-start                         to start Node-RED again
Use   node-red-log                           to view the recent log output
Use   sudo systemctl enable nodered.service  to autostart Node-RED at every boot
Use   sudo systemctl disable nodered.service to disable autostart on boot
 
To find more nodes and example flows - go to http://flows.nodered.org
 
Starting as a systemd service.

instead of

Stop Node-RED
 
Use   node-red-start   to start Node-RED again

Welcome to Node-RED
===================
23 Jul 16:45:00 - [info] Node-RED version: v3.0.1
23 Jul 16:45:00 - [info] Node.js  version: v16.16.0

In the first case the Welcome to node-RED and the following few lines are missing.
In particular, it seems to the first time I run the command the lines are missing, but if I do it again they are there.
