Got it. In the same document: "Halfway the functional design of the X1, I guess early 1957, Bram and Carel confronted me with the idea of the interrupt, and I remember that I panicked, being used to machines with reproducible behaviour. How was I going to identify a bug if I had introduced one? After I had delayed the decision to include the interrupt for 3 months, Bram and Carel flattered me out of my resistance, it was decided that an interrupt would be included and I began to study the problem. To start with I tried to convince myself that it was possible to save and restore enough of the machine state so that, after the servicing of the interrupt, under all circumstances the interrupted computation could be resumed correctly."
