'altqstat -c <count>' is supposed to "[exit] after displaying <count> times."
If <count> is greater than one, then there is a pause (default 5 seconds) 
between status displays.  What seems to be happening is:
    1) the pause happens before the status is displayed
    2) the count check happens after the pause, but before the status
       is displayed, resulting in no status displays if a count of one is 
       specified and unnecesary pre/post-status display delays if count is 
       greater than one.


    # altqstat -c 1
    altqstat: cbq on interface XXXX
    <5 second pause>

No status output and a 5 second pause before exiting.
Now we try with '-c 2': 

    # altqstat -c 2
    altqstat: cbq on interface XXXX
    <5 second pause>
    Root Class for Interface XXXX: root
    [...status display removed...]
    <5 second pause>

This time we get a 5 second pause before and after the status display before
