Just to beat this to death from a different angle...

In a simple case of N = 0 and an 8-bit counter you can see that
    200 - 190 (= 10) has no (N) overflows and
    004 - 250 (= 10) has one (N+1) overflow.

Yet they both represent 10 short ticks of a free-running 8-bit counter. The "flavor" doesn't matter, only the difference, mod-256.
