TBH I didn't even consider that case, but yeah makes sense. Otherwise
the counter won't start to tick and the result of the query is pretty
I was mostly thinking of the 'seq = query(); wait(seq + n);' pattern
where we can avoid doing the full update more than once if we enable
the interrupt already during the query.
