I think it must do something, "wait 0" is a workaround for bug 22453 (and 18924 which is now 
marked as a duplicate.) I had to use the workaround and it works.

So my take is that any wait allows LC to do housekeeping, and "with messages" also allows 
app-generated messages. I'd like to get a confirmation from the team though.
