From a quick glance that should work as well and is IMHO much easier to

Your quick glance is incorrect. _RegisterCommand() takes over the
reference, ergo your code below results in decrementing the reference
count 4 times too many, leading to a double free on exit, hence the
dance of a pair of references that was being done prior to the
space-based approach.

no, there is only one reference in the calling code and _RegisterCommand creates a CommandEntry holding a ref.

deleting all CommandEntry s would delete the object

// CliDumpMemoryCommand
BReference<CliCommand> dumpCommandReference(new(std::nothrow) CliDumpMemoryCommand, true);
if (!_RegisterCommand("db", dumpCommandReference)
        || !_RegisterCommand("db", dumpCommandReference)
        || !_RegisterCommand("dw", dumpCommandReference)
        || !_RegisterCommand("dl", dumpCommandReference)
        || !_RegisterCommand("string", dumpCommandReference))
        return B_NO_MEMORY;

// next command
