Not necessarily "again".

A: "I support plan 1."
B: "jIQochbe'. I also support plan 1."

A: "I support plan 1."
B: "I support plan 2."
A: "Here are the reasons plan 1 is better than plan 2..."
B: "jIQochHa'. I switch my support to plan 1."

I don't know what SuStel had in mind about disagreeing at an inappropriate
time, but it's fairly easy to come up with examples of misplaced or
misconstrued disagreement.

A: "I say we advance the troops."
B: "I think we should hold them in position."
A: "Are we talking about the troops at the River Skrall or the ones at
Kri'stak? I'm talking about the river."
B: "jIQochHa'. I thought we were talking about taking the volcano, but I
agree we should advance our troops at the river."
