Yes, that was discussed at the test fest and its clear that the spec says the value should not interpolate but should be the first value for half the intercal and the second one for the second half.

Testing at exactly the midpoint is thus problematic. The test should pick an interval where the value is clearly one or the other, not the instant of changeover.
