Pivot Align to Target

Why does this have to be run twice in order to properly set the pivot?

mapped fn pivotLookAt obj target = 
	normal = [0,0,0]
	normal += normalize (target.pos - obj.pos)
	tm = matrixfromnormal normal
	rot = inverse tm.rotation
	worldAlignPivot obj
	in coordsys local obj.rotation *= rot
	obj.objectoffsetrot *= rot
	obj.objectoffsetpos *= rot		
	obj.pivot = obj.center

pivotLookAt $ $Teapot001
