Here's a totally unoffical answer.

I would assume you roll when the objective is finally achieved. This is
consistent with many of the other objectives that require die roll(s)
when the objective is reached.

The other reason is that Harlequin is such an a**hole, that it seems
entirely too appropriate to roll at the end - when you can't to anything
about it... :-)
